Louella Fletcher-Michie: Heartbreaking video shows Holby City star's daughter playing with fairy lights hours before she died from drug overdose
Heartbreaking video shows Holby City star John Fletcher-Michie’s daughter hours before she died from a drug overdose.
The footage shows Louella Fletcher-Michie playing with fairy lights at Bestival, and was filmed a short time before she died from a drug overdose at the music festival.
Images show the 24-year-old sitting inside of a tent alongside her boyfriend, who is accused of her manslaughter.
Ceon Broughton, from Enfield, is on trial at Winchester Crown Court. The jury was shown the video on Wednesday.
Yoga and dance teacher Ms Fletcher-Michie took class A party drug 2-CP at Bestival in Dorset on September 10, 2017 and died in woodland an hour before her 25th birthday.
Broughton, 30, denies manslaughter by gross negligence and supplying the drug.
The court has heard that Miss Fletcher-Michie is understood to be the first person to have died after taking the drug.
The mobile phone footage released by Dorset Police shows Miss Fletcher-Michie and Broughton playing around with some fairy lights inside a tent at the festival before she became ill.
A voice is heard to say “Festival fairy Louella” followed by Miss Fletcher-Michie, smiling, saying “Pixie love” while a third person held the camera-phone.
Earlier this week, the jury were shown images of Ms Michie walking around the festival with Broughton.
They show the couple walking in the site before Miss Fletcher-Michie began hallucinating in woodland where she became seriously ill.
Broughton is accused of failing to take reasonable action to help her get medical attention.
A photograph of a small plastic bag containing white powder found in Broughton’s phone case has also been released.
The jury has begun its deliberations in the trial, which has been adjourned to continue on Thursday.
