A man left brain-dead after an experimental drug trial in France has died, local media report.

The man was one of several volunteers taken ill in the city of Rennes.

On Friday, the chief neuroscientist at the hospital, Gilles Edan, said there was a risk that three of those being treated could have permanent brain damage.

Reports that the drug was a cannabis-based painkiller have been denied by the French health ministry.
