12 November 2013, 17:37
A Bedfordshire teenager who died after falling ill during the Reading Festival had not taken any illegal substances, toxicology tests have shown.
Northamptonshire Police said tests had also found 17 year-old Esme Blore-Rimmer did not take any "legal highs" prior to her death.
Esme, from Stevington, near Bedford, died at Northampton General Hospital on August 26, prompting a joint inquiry involving the Thames Valley and Northamptonshire police forces.
Today, Northamptonshire Police told Heart further tests had been ordered after a post-mortem proved inconclusive.
An inquest into Esme's death was opened and adjourned in September this year.
