A man has been charged with supplying drugs after a police investigation was launched following the deaths of two people at a music festival.

Georgia Jones, 18, and Tommy Cowan, 20, died in hospital after taking pills at the Mutiny Festival in May 2018.

Lee Harvey, 22, of Havant, has been charged with three counts of supplying class A drugs.

Mr Harvey's arrest came as part of a subsequent inquiry into drug dealing at the event.

He is due at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court on 21 January.

Two men and a woman previously arrested over suspected drug offences have been released with no further action.

The festival was held at King George V Playing Fields in Cosham on Saturday 26 May.

The second day was cancelled following the deaths.

This article was amended on 25 February 2020 to clarify what the charges related to.
