The 25-year-old's body was found in a wooded area on the edge of the festival site at Lulworth Castle in Dorset just before 1am on Monday.

A man arrested on suspicion of murdering and supplying a Class A drug was released under investigation last night.

It's reported the daughter of Holby City star John Michie apparently took an "illegal substance" before her death at Bestival.

However, Broughton, who was the longterm boyfriend of the deceased, was re-arrested over potentially supplying a class A drug which may have killed Miss Michie - the daughter of famous television soap actor John Michie, according to the Mail.

"They said in a statement their "hearts are broken by the horrific tragedy" and Ms Michie "(appears) to have taken an illegal substance". We do not believe there to have been any malice intended in Louella and Ceon's weekend at Bestival.

Louella died a day before her 26th birthday.

A Dorset Police spokesman said: "An initial post-mortem examination took place on September 11, which showed no clear signs of an assault. The family would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt tributes and messages".

In a statement on Monday, modelling agency The Eye Casting said: "It is with profound sadness and shock that we have heard of the death of our lovely model Louella Michie".

"We continue to support the police in their ongoing investigation and our thoughts and prayers are with all the woman's family and friends".
