After arriving in the club, which she does want to name, at around 11pm her last memory is meeting some friends at the bar before she was discharged from hospital around 10 hours later.Sarah spoke after anoutcryover needles being used to spike women with powerful so-called date rape drugs at nightclubs across the UK.

‘It all came out of nowhere,’ she said. ‘My friends said I stopped talking and I tried typing something on my phone but it wasn’t making sense. I wasn’t able to speak or stand up, so security said to me to leave.‘My friends got in a taxi with me and at this point I started really violently throwing up. Apparently I started screaming as well and I was going unconscious. I was in and out of this horrible state. In the taxi they called an ambulance to meet us at the house.

‘When the ambulance arrived I was unconscious and choking.’Sarah’s left hand was throbbing and a mark resembling a pin-prick on the back suggests a needle was used, but she also believes there is a chance her drink could have spiked.‘However it happened it doesn’t change the fact that women are in danger,’ she said.

‘It’s really important that nightclubs take responsibility to ensure these attacks are less likely to happen and they need to introduce protocols such as mandatory searches, providing bottle stoppers and lid covers and having no CCTV blind spots.‘Staff also need to be informed what to look out for after and be more sympathetic to the fact that not everyone has had too much to drink.

‘The government needs to make sure it is easier for hospitals and police to communicate, collect and share evidence. I don’t think we’ll ever eradicate these attacks, but we can make them less likely.’Sarah Buckle says she has suffered anxiety since she was the victim of a spiking incident in a Nottingham club (Picture: Sarah Buckle)

In her letter to the MPs, the management student says that in the past few days she has been approached by ‘hundreds of young women who have experienced similar incidents to me, or have recommendations about measures which can be implemented to help prevent further attacks’.

The suggestions also include making it mandatory for clubs to scan IDs on entry and exit, recording who was in a venue at a certain time.Although there has been a national outcry and police forces have made a number of arrests, the second year’s case is still being investigated.

She told that because her tests weren’t taken at an optimal time when the incident occurred on September 28 or in the early hours of the following day, it’s unlikely they will show anything once they have been examined in a laboratory.Sarah Buckle woke up in hospital after a night out with no memory of how she got there and a throbbing pain in her left hand (Picture: ITV)

A night out with friends turned into an ordeal for Sarah Buckle after she was administered an incapacitating substance (Picture: Sarah Buckle)‘I’m terrified at the fact that whoever did this is still out there,’ she said.‘I’m really, really scared. That’s another reason why I’m demanding that the government does more to protect women.

‘I understand it is hard to make arrests and secure convictions so it’s important to make sure that those responsible have little chance to carry out these attacks again.‘I’ve suffered extreme anxiousness that this could happen again to me or my friends. It makes you question everyone.

‘Who knows? It’s a really scary thought.’Sarah joined calls from students and other women demanding the government and nightclub industry does more to tackle the problem.One petition,, calls for all venues to be legally required to ‘thoroughly search’ guests on entry. More than 167,000 people have signed to date.
