A rapper has been jailed for eight-and-a-half years for the manslaughter of Holby City actor John Michie’s daughter.
Ceon Broughton, 30, was found responsible for the death of Louella Fletcher-Michie, who suffered a fatal reaction to the hallucinogenic drug 2-CP at the Bestival music festival in September 2017.
Broughton was also found guilty of supplying Miss Fletcher-Michie with the drug, as well as two other charges of supplying drugs at Glastonbury festival in June 2017.

Mis Fletcher-Michie’s father said: “"I wake up every morning to face life starting again without Louella, our daughter, our sister, our friend, our family now broken.
"For what? It makes no sense, our beautiful Louella should still be with us on any measure of humanity.
"No more yoga with my daughter, no more running round the outside of the Arsenal stadium with my daughter, nor more family fun with my daughter, her life cut cruelly short."
'Stupid and massively selfish'
John Michie speaking after the conviction at Winchester Crown Court.
The court were shown videos of Miss Fletcher-Michie taken by the defendant in which Broughton refused to allow her to call her mother, singer Carol Fletcher-Michie, as her condition worsened.
Her parents attempted to find their daughter at the festival site after contacting Broughton and hearing Miss Fletcher-Michie “screeching”.
Prosecutor William Mousley QC said Broughton had not sought help because he feared the consequences of a suspended jail term he had been given a month earlier.
Mrs Fletcher-Michie told the court: “We do not think Ceon is evil - he was stupid, massively selfish, and he lied.”
