Three men accused of drugs offences and perverting the course of justice are to stand trial after a man died at a Greater Manchester nightclub.

Nick Bonnie, 30, from Stroud, died at The Warehouse Project in Trafford after taking a drug he believed to be ecstasy.

The men, all from Stroud in Gloucestershire, are charged with supplying or possessing class A drugs.

They and a fourth man are also charged with perverting the course of justice.

They are all due to appear at Manchester's Minshull Street Crown Court on 28 January.

They did not enter a plea at an earlier hearing at Trafford Magistrates' Court.

All four charged men are from Stroud, in Gloucestershire:

  • James Churchill, 30, of Selsey West, is charged with perverting the course of justice and six counts of supplying a class A drug;
  • Paul Tabb, 30, of Stanley View, is charged with perverting the course of justice and two counts of possession of class A drugs;
  • Dean Neale, 29, of Mosley Crescent, is charged with perverting the course of justice and two counts of possession of class A drugs;
  • Simon Lloyd-Jones, 29, of Fox Moor Lane, is charged with perverting the course of justice.

A police investigation began in September after officers were called to Manchester Royal Infirmary following the death of Mr Bonnie, who was originally from Stroud but lived in Bristol.
