A man has pleaded guilty to supplying a class A drug to a York teenager who died after taking the substance.

Poppy Rodgers, 16, died in hospital last April after collapsing at a house in Tang Hall Lane. An inquest heard she had taken a "yellow-white" paste.

Luke Carey, 24, of Waterings, Wigginton, York, admitted giving her methylamphetamine when he appeared at York Crown Court on Monday.

He is due to be sentenced at the court on 7 August and was released on bail.

Carey admitted seven counts in total, which included another count of supplying the drug, four of offering to supply the drug and one of possession with an intent to supply.
