Four men from Gloucestershire have been charged after the club drug death of an employee of the Prince of Wales's charity.

30 year old Nick Bonnie, from Stroud, is suspected to have died after swallowing a pill while out on a "lads' weekend'' at a club in Manchester.

Police warned of a "particularly bad batch'' of drugs in circulation, with five other people from the venue admitted to hospital after the incident on September 28. Mr Bonnie collapsed at the Warehouse Project in Trafford and died at Manchester Royal Infirmary hours later.

He worked for Charles's Prince's Trust charity and had been to Highgrove on several occasions and attended one of the Queen's garden parties at Buckingham Palace.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said that four people have been charged following Mr Bonnie's death.

James Churchill, 29, of Selsey West, Stroud, has been charged with perverting the course of justice and six counts of supplying a Class A drug.

Paul Tabb, 30, of Stanley View, Stroud, has been charged with perverting the course of justice and two counts of possession of Class A drugs.

Dean Neale, 29, of Mosley Crescent, Stroud, has been charged with perverting the course of justice and two counts of possession of Class A drugs.

Simon Lloyd-Jones, 29, of Fox Moor Lane, Stroud, has been charged with perverting the course of justice.

All four have been bailed to appear at Trafford Magistrates' Court on January 7.
