She said: '˜She just walked up to me, she was gurning, I said 'What have you taken?' and I said 'Go and sort yourself out'.'

Friend Chloe Edwards who saw her collapse said: '˜She was lying on the floor and she was fitting, I shouted 'Get a paramedic, get a paramedic' but no-one was coming, it felt like it was taking too long.'

There will be a separate inquest later this week into the death of Tommy Cowan, 20, who also died at the festival. 

The inquest into Miss Jones' death continues tomorrow.
