According to the BBC AM Michelle Brown from Mostyn has been forced to deny she smoked “recreational drugs” in the bedroom of a Cardiff Bay hotel she was staying at.

Future Inns accused Michelle Brown of smoking the drugs while she stayed at the hotel and charged her £250, due to a strong smell, it meant the room could not be used for 24 hours. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A spokesman for Ms Brown told the BBC the AM denied the allegation of drug use. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

He said the smell was caused by the AM smoking a strong tobacco product in the non-smoking room. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It was an absent-minded mistake, and Michelle paid the resulting cleaning fee,” the spokesman said. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Ms Brown stayed at the hotel from May 9 to May 11,the week of her election. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The complaint was made by the hotel following her departure on the Wednesday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A spokesman for the North Wales AM told the BBC:

Michelle had recently spent a couple of nights at a hotel with smoking rooms, of which there are many across the UK, and regrettably forgot she was staying in a hotel without such rooms. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It was an absent-minded mistake, and Michelle paid the resulting cleaning fee. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A spokesman for the hotel told the BBC:

Future Inns would like to confirm the illegal use of drugs on our premises at any time is not allowed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We do not, however, discuss these matters with third parties except as required by law enforcement authorities. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
