Man arrested over death of Louella Michie at Bestival released under investigation

A man who was arrested in relation to the death of a 25-year-old woman at Bestival has been released under investigation.

Louella Michie, the daughter of Coronation Street and Holby City star John Michie, was found dead at the music festival on Monday.

A 28-year-old man, who was known to Ms Michie, was arrested on suspicion of murder and supply of a controlled class A drug.

He has now been released under investigation, Dorset Police have said.

Officers at the event at Lulworth Castle were alerted just before 1am on Monday to reports of a concern for the welfare of a woman.

Following a search, Ms Michie’s body was found in a wooded area on the edge of the festival site.

An initial post-mortem showed no clear signs of an assault, police said. They said further examinations would take place over the coming weeks "in order to establish if there were any substances in her system or other suspicious circumstances".

A Bestival spokesman said: "The team at Bestival are devastated to hear about this tragic news.

"We continue to support the police in their ongoing investigation and our thoughts and prayers are with all the woman’s family and friends."

John Michie played Karl Munro in Coronation Street from 2011 to 2013, having previously starred as Detective Inspector Robbie Ross in drama series Taggart from 1998 to 2010.

He currently plays neurosurgeon Guy Self in TV medical drama Holby City.
