Boyfriend, Daniel, said: ‘She was taking Ketamine when we got back to the tents. She would take ecstasy at about 7pm before going to the music.
‘I woke up at 11am and my friend woke us up and said we need to leave. I tried getting Livvy’s attention but there was no movement or response so I tilted her onto her back.
There were a few signs she didn’t look well. I pulled her out of the tent and called for my friends.’
At the festival, Olivia had bought small green pills with a Heinz Baked Beans logo on them before taking some red pills belonging to her friends. She also took ketamine ‘four or five times a day’ while at the festival according to one of her friends.

A pathologist found she died as a result of poisoning from MDMA and Etizolam.
