A man fears he was jabbed by a needle after it was confirmed he was spiked while on a night out in Lincoln.

Factory worker Adam Dennis was on a night out to celebrate a friend’s birthday at Bierkeller in the city on Saturday.

While enjoying himself with 10 others, the 25-year-old began to feel unwell and described it as his "body shutting down altogether".

His friends were asking how he was but the effects stopped him from even being able to communicate.

His 20-year-old girlfriend Caladesi Rose had to help carry him home along with his best friend after his body "stopped working".

Speaking to LincolnshireLive, Adam said: "I started to blackout and feel my body shutting down altogether.

"It started off with my legs, they just stopped working.

"Then the whole left side of my body just stopped working and gradually made its way up to my neck where I couldn't hold it up anymore."

Paramedics were called to assess Adam, who is originally from Derbyshire, and confirmed he had been spiked with something.

However, Adam believes he may have been jabbed by something as he had shared the drink with others, who were all fine.

He admits he won’t be going to any more nightclubs after being scared by the incident but feels thankful it had not happened to any of the females in his group.

Adam added: "Personally, I'm glad it happened to me and not any of the girls because I would hate what it would be like for a girl to go through that.

The incident with Adam comes after a 19-year-old university student in Nottingham was spiked by a needle in Nottingham.

Zara Owen was in the Pryzm nightclub but that was the last thing she remembered before waking up in bed the next day.

There was also a similar incident in Edinburgh, which prompted former Napier University student Hannah Thomson to start a petition for the government to make it a legal requirement for nightclubs to thoroughly search guests as they enter.
