Rapper Ceon Broughton has had his conviction for the manslaughter of his girlfriend overturned by the Court of Appeal.

Louella Fletcher-Michie, 25, died after taking the drug 2C-P at Bestival on September 11 2017 after Broughton "bumped up" her dose of the hallucinogenic drug.

She screamed for her parents, "tripping" on a dose six times stronger than usual to the extent she began eating thorns, before eventually dying in the undergrowth at the site at Lulworth Cove.

Broughton failed to get help despite the medical tent just being 300 yards away – and sat filming the girl as she died.

Louella, daughter of actor John Michie, died as her parents frantically tried to reach Dorset.

Prosecutors accused Broughton of not getting help for Louella as he feared arrest as he was serving a suspended sentence at the time.

He had previously been convicted on two charges of possessing a lock knife and a Stanley knife blade.

It also emerged he had filmed previous girlfriends while they were "tripping" and took sadistic pleasure from the videos.

Broughton was found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence following a trial at Winchester Crown Court in March 2019.

He was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison.
