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.
