A CRUSH at a Northampton night club has claimed its second victim, a 19-year-old student from Wembley.
Northampton Police have confirmed the death of Laurene-Danielle Jackson, the second woman to die after the tragic incident at Lava and Ignite nightclub in the early hours of October 19.
Laurene, a Wembley resident, died at Leicester Glenfield Hosptal on Sunday.
22-year-old leisure and tourism student at Northampton University Nabila Nanfuka, of Yeats Close in Neasden, died from traumatic crush asphyxia at Northampton General Hospital soon after the incident last month.
She was taken there shortly after the crush at the Wickedest Wickedest event, and the cause of death was read out at her inquest at Kettering Magistrates Court.
She was one of many party-goers at the Wickedest Wickedest event, many of whom had travelled to the venue from out of town.
Eyewitnesses described revellers rushing for the exits following an announcement that coaches were leaving to take them home. Another woman, aged 21, was hurt in the incident but has since been released from hospital.
Northampton Borough Council has temporarily suspended the nightclub's licence while an investigation is carried out after police told its licensing committee that they believe staff had lost control of the premises.
Luminar, which runs Lava & Ignite, Liquid and Oceana clubs throughout the UK, announced just days after the tragedy that it will appoint administrators in a move that will put up to 3,000 jobs at risk.
