A woman has died following a suspected drug-related incident at an all-night music event in Bournemouth.

The 18-year-old went into cardiac arrest at the O2 Academy shortly before 04:30 BST on Sunday.

She was taken to Royal Bournemouth Hospital but died later that morning. Police said her next of kin had been informed.

A spokesman said: "Officers are treating the death as suspected drug-related and not suspicious.

"Inquiries are being carried out on behalf of the coroner."
