A second student has died after a crush at a nightclub last month. Laurene Danielle Jackson, 19, died in hospital on Sunday, two weeks after the incident in which another student, 22-year-old Nabila Nanfuka, was killed.
It’s alleged that the crush occurred after an announcement that coaches were arriving to take clubbers home. People allegedly rushed to the exits at the 1,600-capacity venue. As well as Jackson and Nanfuka, who both died, another student was injured but was later released from hospital.
The club has since closed but an investigation is believed to be ongoing and Northamptonshire’s police force has reportedly referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, although no IPCC investigation has so far been launched.
