A 45-year-old father from Singleton, Ashford, UK, has admitted killing his own daughter by supplying her with drugs MDMA and cocaine.

17-yea-old Chloe Wilkes could have been saved had Jason Wilkes not delayed getting medical help to her for nearly an hour at their home last July.

She collapsed after taking the drug but instead of calling an ambulance her father drove her to his work place.

She was eventually taken to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, Kent, where she died soon after.

Wilkes pleaded guilty to manslaughter shortly before he was due to stand trial at Maidstone Crown Court.

He had previously admitted supplying her with MDMA.

James Mulholland QC, prosecuting, said it was not the first time Wilkes had obtained Class A drugs for him and daughter to take together.

'Here was her parent who in reality should have been protecting her from Class A drugs and, in fact, encouraged his child to take them.'

Referencing a statement from by Chloe's mother, Judge Statman said: 'The impact has been profound.

'One cannot think of anything worse for a mother to have to go through.'

Wilkes – who also had a 13-year-old son living with him – said he and Chloe had taken a lot of drugs on the fatal night and the night before.

Prosecutor Mr Mulholland said: 'He said he felt like getting on it and she agreed. She said all her friends were busy that weekend.'

Wilkes said he bought a gramme of MDMA which they shared on the first night and did not go to bed.

The next day he bought another gramme and they decided to take it again after his son went to bed.

He put half a gramme of the drug, which cost him £160, in a Rizla paper and they swallowed it with water in a method known as 'bombing'.

Three hours later – around 1am – he said Chloe had become 'agitated and disorientated' and he took her into their garden where she was wobbly and banging into things.

He then drove her into the woods and the teen was said to be rambling and soaking wet from overheating.

Wilkes put her back into the car and she got out and fell over before he then took her on a circuitous route to the industrial estate where he worked to try to 'cool her down'.

But Chloe began fitting and foaming at the mouth and Wilkes made a 999 call in the early hours of July 27.

He said his daughter was not breathing and did not have a pulse and he was giving her CPR.

Paramedics arrived at the industrial estate within eight minutes where they found no sign of life but they managed to restart her heart.

Asked what had happened, Wilkes said he and his daughter had both taken ecstasy three hours earlier.

Mr Mulholland said hospital medical staff worked hard to try to save Chloe's life, but were unsuccessful.

He added: 'He applied a towel to her forehead. Of course, these were vital moments which were lost potentially in saving her life.

'When they arrived at the unit she was unresponsive. Somewhere in the region of an hour had elapsed.'

The amount of ecstasy she took was very high and such quantities had proved fatal in other cases.

Judge Statman said: 'She is unwell clearly at the home address. Why didn't he take her straight to hospital?'
