Poppy died in June 2013 after suffering a cardiac arrest in a home where prescription and controlled drugs were “left lying around”. A post-mortem examination could not establish a cause of death but toxicology tests carried out on her blood and hair found various drugs, and showed the young girl had been exposed to and had ingested significant amounts of heroin and methadone for a period of between two and six months before her death.
