Broughton, who performs under the artist name CEONRPG and has recorded music with Skepta, previously pleaded guilty to supplying 2-CP to Miss Fletcher-Michie and another person at the Glastonbury Festival earlier in 2017.

Broughton is on trial at Winchester Crown Court where he standing trial for her manslaughter.

Ceon Broughton, 30, spent more than six hours documenting Louella Fletcher-Michie's deteriorating condition but failed to seek medical help that might have saved her life even though there was a first aid tent 400 metres away.

He said Broughton had sought help through text messages and sending his GPS position through the mobile phone app Google Maps.

Jurors also heard how Louella hit herself and screamed "like a wild animal", following a "bad trip" as Broughton filmed her on his phone.

Broughton then sat down with his hands held together in front of his face as the judge, Mr Justice Goose, said he meant to sentence him on Friday.

Mr Michie told the court that he thinks his daughter loved Broughton, but added "I'm not sure he loved her".

Nishikori off to winning start in Dubai as seeds continue to tumble
Roger Federer has continued his exceptional record at ATP Dubai by winning his previous match in 3 sets against Fernando Verdasco. The 32-year-old will play Ricardas Berankis , a victor over Denis Kudla 6-4, 6-1, on Thursday for a place in the semi-finals.

He said Ms Aberg found an image of her on Broughton's phone which she deleted.

Mr Mousley said the potential evidence was "capable of establishing a pattern of behaviour which supported the prosecution case".

Her mother eventually contacted Broughton at 6.48pm and heard her daughter "screeching" before she rushed with her husband to the festival site in a bid to find her.

Ceon Broughton failed to get adequate help when Louella took an overdose of illegal party drug 2C-P at Bestival in 2017.

He was given a 24-week sentence suspended for a year at Thames magistrates' court in August 2017, just a month before he and Louella attended the music festival where she died.

Mr Kamlish also questioned why it was "relevant" whether somebody might take a "morbid interest" in the images Ms Aberg described.

He said the video clips "offer little, if anything to assist the jury" because the type and supply of the drug being offered was unclear.

Broughton estimated that Louella had taken a deadly amount of the drug, although results from her post-mortem were not conclusive.
