Benidorm hen-do plunge victim Kirsty Maxwell had taken no drugs but had binged on alcohol before her death

The revelation comes less than a fortnight before a court hearing where four British men placed under formal investigation over her death on April 29 death will be quizzed by a Spanish judge.

Amazon worker Joseph Graham, the fifth man who is facing a court probe and the only one hauled to court so far to give evidence, has not been summonsed to the July 26 hearing.

The toxicology tests were carried out in Barcelona by the Chemicals and Drugs Service of Spain’s National Institutute of Toxicology and Forensic Sciences. They were performed between May 16 and June 16 using blood and urine samples sent to the institute by Alicante’s Institute of Legal Medicine in May.

Mrs Maxwell, 27, from Livingston, West Lothian, died instantly after plunging from a 10-storey apartment she entered by mistake. The Scot, who married her grieving husband Adam in September, had been out partying with a group of female friends she had travelled to Spain with for a hen-do.

Joseph Graham, 32, from Nottingham, told police Mrs Maxwell was acting as if she was “mad, drunk or drugged” and headed for the bathroom before trying to get through an indoor window and then disappearing from his view as she headed to the balcony.

Her family and friends have never hidden the fact she had been drinking but have always angrily denied any drugs-taking.

Mrs Maxwell’s family lawyer Luis Miguel Zumaquero said: “We always knew there was going to be a high blood alcohol level.”
