A man has appeared in court charged with supplying Class A drugs to a York teenager who died after consuming a paste thought to contain amphetamine.

Poppy Rodgers, 16, died in hospital in April after collapsing at a friend's house. An inquest heard she had taken a "yellow-white" paste.

Luke Carey, 24, of Waterings, Wigginton, York, was released on conditional bail by York magistrates.

He will next appear at the court for a committal hearing on 3 January.

Mr Carey was also charged with another count of supplying a Class A drug, four counts of attempting to supply a Class A drug and possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.
