In the pink in Belfast

In Belfast, an inquest has been told that William Andrew Craig, a 27-year-old, has gone into the record books as the first fatality (in 2016) in the province due to the drug U-47700, a synthetic opioid that has about 7.5 times the potency of morphine.

The US Drug Enforcement Agency says the drug goes by the street names U4, pink, or pinky.
