What effect would licking a common English toad have on humans?

So there are the wives' tales about 'toad licking' in the 1960s (and I hear there's a Family Guy episode about this, too), but that seems to pertain to American toads.
What would happen to a person who licked a common English toad? I know they do secrete certain substances from their glands, but would these have any adverse effects -- or any effects at all -- on a human?
