A 17-year-old boy arrested after the death of an Oxford schoolgirl who died from taking ecstasy has pleaded guilty to selling drugs to children.

Martha Fernback, 15, suffered a cardiac arrest at Hinksey Park on 20 July last year after taking the drug MDMA (ecstasy).

The Cherwell School pupil, who had been in the park with a group of friends, died shortly afterwards in hospital.

After the hearing at Oxford Crown Court, Williams, of Sycamore Road, was released on bail.

He is due to be sentenced on 10 March.
