Kervin Vigus, 49, spoke out after his family released a highly-emotional video tribute to Amy and warning about taking drugs on Facebook.

The voiceover says: "Our Amy boarded a train on the 19th August, 2017, which would take her to Elrow Town, London".

"She continued to socialise and smile".

Former Gilberd School pupil Amy, 20, died in hospital earlier this month just three days after taking a pill that she thought had contained MDMA - known as ecstasy - but which proved fatal to her.

The video, which has had almost two million views, reveals Amy took the drug in a "moment of madness" at Elrow Town Festival in Stratford, London.

"Our Amy made a mistake".

"In that moment of madness, she took an unknown substance". Then, she began to pay for her mistake.

"This led to her being violently sick and fitting multiple times".

"The corridors of Colchester General Hospital echoed with the cries and screams of her family members".

"Our Amy managed to make it home where she collapsed one more time".

A fundraising campaign has also been set up to raise money for the Colchester Hospitals Charity, which has raised more than £2,100 already.

"Amy was taken to Colchester General Hospital and immediately escorted to resuscitation".

Paying tribute to the hospital, a message on the page states: "Colchester Intensive Care Unit provided unbelievable care for Amy when she was taken to hospital. We can't thank the staff enough for their incredible support and attention they gave Amy and her family", they said.
