A group of metal detectorists had to go to hospital after unknowingly eating cakes apparently spiked with cannabis in a village called High Melton.

Some 13 men and women fell ill at the rally in Doncaster on Saturday night.

A detectorist spokesman said: "People could have died. It was lucky that no children or people on medication with serious health problems ate the cake."

A 48-year-old woman from County Durham was arrested and later released on bail.

Julian Evan-Hart, editor of Treasure Hunting Magazine, said it was a "dreadful incident" but he did not believe it was malevolent.

"I think it was an irresponsible, poorly thought-through joke," he said.

"This isn't a poor reflection on our hobby, the dig organisers or anyone else involved the planning of the event. It's just a case of random lunacy."

large fleet of medical staff were called to the scene.

More Yorkshire stories

They included eight ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, two doctors, two clinical supervisors and a Hazardous Area Response Team.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service said two people were treated on the spot.

It said: "Yorkshire Ambulance Service received an emergency call just before 18:30 BST on Saturday to reports of a number of people feeling unwell at a national metal detecting event...

"They had become unwell after ingesting an unknown substance."

Mr Evan-Hart said the cakes were homemade, and had not been sold.

The 13 people admitted to hospital, who came from across the country, were later discharged.

They're right, eating cake does have links to obesity which is known to kill and also make people get all out of breath running for the train so when they get on they're all flustered and need a good 5 minutes to get their composure back before thoughts drift to Greggs and the latest steak slice daydream again.

I remember that time my aunt brought sherry trifle in place of regular trifle to a family get-together and it got declared a major incident. Thank god for armed police and the air ambulance

This is even better, after imaging exactly this, when you remember the real life incident had MORE than just eight ambulances.
