A post-mortem examination into the death of a 17-year-old girl who died after attending the Reading Festival has proved inconclusive.

Further tests will now be carried out to find out what caused the death of Esme Blore, from Stevington in Bedfordshire.

The teenager died at Northampton General Hospital on Monday.

Police said a second girl was taken to hospital but has now been discharged.

Referring to the second girl, a force spokesman said: "She did not have meningitis. We will not be releasing further information about her or her illness."

Toxicology and test reports into Ms Blore's death will take a further four to six weeks to complete.

Police said the results would be publicised when known.

"We would appeal again to the media and people on social networking sites to refrain from publishing or posting speculation and rumours about Esme's death, as these are proving very upsetting to her family and friends at what is already an extremely difficult time," the spokesman added.

Ms Blore was initially treated at the Royal Berkshire Hospital on Saturday, but discharged a few hours later.

A Royal Berkshire Hospital spokesman confirmed she had visited the festival on Saturday.
