A head chef for P&O Ferries died during a sex game after being wrapped in black plastic sheeting and cling film, Canterbury Crown Court was told today.

Alun Williams, 47, was unable to regulate his body temperature after being mummified and suffered dehydration which eventually led to a heart attack, a jury at Canterbury Crown Court was told.

The chef, who lived with his girlfriend at the time, had an interest in bondage and mummification and would meet men online for sex, the trial heard.

Richard Bowler, 35, and David Connor, 23, from Canterbury, are charged with his manslaughter.

Bowler, who has cerebral palsy, wept loudly as prosecutor Ian Hope opened the case and had to be asked by the judge to keep the noise down.

Tests on Mr Williams later revealed he had taken a cocktail of drugs including the horse tranquiliser ketamine. The court heard that he had lay dead for several hours before the pair realised what had happened.

Mr Hope told the court there were many risks to leaving Mr Williams in a room on his own while wrapped up in plastic sheeting and clingfilm after he had taken drugs.

He said: ‘At the very least they were bound to constantly monitor him which they failed to do and which resulted in his death, unnoticed by both of them for quite some time.’

The jury was also played the 999 call made to the police by Bowler shortly before 6am.

He is heard telling the call handler: ‘It’s a bit embarrassing.

‘It’s my friend, he’s called Alun. I have known him for five years.

‘I’m gay, he’s gay. We had a bit of a kinky sex game and he’s stopped breathing.’

Prosecuting judge Mr Hope said that Mr Williams was dead by the time the paramedics arrived. Mr Hope went on to say that police found drugs including ketamine, cocaine, methamphetamine and amyl nitrate, otherwise known as poppers, in Mr Williams’ rucksack.

Bowler and Connor both deny the charges against them. The trial continues.
