A rapper who gave his girlfriend drugs at a music festival and filmed her as she died has had his conviction for manslaughter overturned.

The daughter of Holby City actor John Michie died after taking the hallucinogenic class A drug 2-CP at Bestival in Dorset in 2017.

The case was overturned by three sitting Judges.

Miss Fletcher-Michie was found dead in woodland, 400m from the festival’s hospital tent within the early hours of 11 September 2017, the day she was turning 25.

During Broughton’s trial, the jury was shown video shot of the rapper – who used the pseudonym CeonRPG – during which Miss Fletcher-Michie became “disturbed, agitated, then seriously ill”.

Broughton, of Enfield, north London, was found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence and supplying a category A drug at Winchester Crown Court in February last year.
