Michael Jackson was surrounded by bottles of prescription pills, oxygen tanks and other medical equipment in the bedroom where he died, according to photographs of the scene released by police.

The images from the entertainer's room in a Los Angeles mansion showed 12 oxygen tanks stacked near his bed, an IV stand and bottles of Propofol, the powerful anaesthetic that was found in his system. Other bottles had labels for drugs including lorazepam, diazepam and lidocaine.

The pictures also showed a list of 24-hour pharmacies found inside the car of Dr Conrad Murray, Jackson's physician who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter over his death.

The images were police exhibits in Murray's trial in 2011 and were released by the Los Angeles Police Department as Jackson's family is suing his concert promoter AEG Live.

Jackson's mother Katherine alleges the promoter and its executives failed to properly investigate Murray, who administered a lethal dose of Propofol to the singer before his death on June 25, 2009, at the age of 50.

Katherine Jackson claims AEG missed warning signs about her son's failing health, which the concert company denies. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
