The daughter of a soap star was filmed by her boyfriend for 50 minutes after she took the Class A drug 2-CP and later died from an overdose at a music festival, a court has heard.

Louella Fletcher-Michie, 24, was found dead by security staff at Bestival in Dorset at around 1am on 11 September 2017.

Boyfriend Ceon Broughton, 29, had ignored pleas from her family to seek help as her condition worsened, Winchester Crown Court was told, and had left her to seek help when she was found.

In the video footage he recorded, Louella can be heard shouting: “This is the best trip I have ever f****** had.”

In another clip shown in court, recorded at around 5.53pm, she says: “My mum and dad, brother and sister, I love you lot.”

She repeatedly shouted to Broughton, telling him to “film me”, “call my mum” and “call my brother, call my sister”.

Broughton, who appears to smile during the footage, turns the camera on himself and tells Louella: “It’s between me and you.”

He also tells her to put her mobile phone on airplane mode, which would disable calls and messaging, and to “put your phone away” as she talks about contacting her mother.

Louella can be seen stumbling around a wooded area on the fringe of the festival site at Lulworth Castle.

The court heard that Louella’s mother, Carol Fletcher-Michie, eventually managed to contact Broughton at 6.48pm and heard Louella “screeching” in the background.

She “dropped everything” and travelled with Mr Michie, 62, who has starred in Holby City, Coronation Street and Taggart, to the festival site.

Broughton, from Enfield, north London, denies manslaughter and supplying Louella with the drug.

The trial continues.
