Four men will appear in court next month following the death of Nick Bonnie who collapsed at Manchester’s Warehouse project.
The 30-year-old clubber died after ingesting what was believed to be contaminated drugs on September 27 while attending the opening night of the iconic Manchester event.
A suspected drug dealer was arrested the following day but was admitted to Salford Royal after swallowing around 12 small bags of drugs while he was detained by police.
Bonnie’s parents paid tribute to their charity-giving son who they described as having ‘a big heart and big personality’.
“Our lives and all those who were blessed to share a part in his life are broken. Our life will never be the same without Nick and he will never be forgotten,” they added.
James Churchill, 29, of Selsey West, Stroud, Gloucestershire, has been charged with perverting the course of justice and six counts of supplying a Class A drug.
Paul Tabb, 30, of Stanley View, Stroud, Gloucestershire, and Dean Neale, 29, of Mosley Crescent, Stroud, Gloucestershire, have both been charged with perverting the course of justice and two counts of possession of Class A drugs.
Simon Lloyd-Jones, 29, of Fox Moor Lane, Stroud, Gloucestershire, has been charged with perverting the course of justice.
All four have been bailed to appear at Trafford Magistrates Court on January 7.
