There's no reason to assume it was suspected alcohol poisoning. The UCL statement makes no reference to this, and the TSR thread is hardly reputable.

drug OD more likely than alcohol poisoning surely?

I don't find the bad journalism interesting. And trust me, it wasn't anything to do with drink or drugs. I know.

"Cardiac experts said the heavy bass from the club?s loudspeakers could have triggered sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) which kills 12 young people a [u]week[/u]."

"toxicology tests had found no traces of drugs or alcohol in his blood".

?He had a brilliant life ahead of him. We were, and we remain, tremendously proud of our precious son.?
