John had previously spoken about his daughter Louella, describing her as their “angel”.

“She touched so many lives. She was so very positive, so bright, so out there. She had such energy. The tributes to her have been incredible.”

He had previously posted a picture of Louella sewing her costume as she got ready for Bestival. But tragically she died at the festival.

When news of the tragic death broke, it was reported that a man had been arrested for questioning.

However, the man in question – Louella’s boyfriend Ceon Broughton – was released under investigation.

Speaking to The Sun, John said: “It was just a tragic mistake, a tragic accident.

“This was not a murder. They were girlfriend and boyfriend.”
