The father of a girl whose 15-year-old friend died after taking drugs during a party at his west London home has been charged with possessing drugs.

Isobel Jones-Reilly fell ill at the house in Barlby Road, north Kensington, on 23 April and died later in hospital.

Brian Dodgeon, 61, a research fellow at the University of London's Institute of Education, faces five counts of drugs possession.

He is due to appear at West London Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Mr Dodgeon, who has been suspended from his job on full pay, is accused of possessing the drugs MDMA (ecstasy), LSD, 5-MeO-dipt (Foxy Methoxy), ketamine and diazepam.

Isobel, who lived in Ramsay Road, South Acton, died after a cardiac arrest. An inquest into her death was opened and adjourned in May.
