A BUS driver who claimed he had been abused as a child hanged himself at his home.
Peter Davies, who drove for First Bus in Huddersfield, was still alive when he was discovered hanging from a loft hatch at Harp Inge in Dalton on November 26. But he died from brain damage on December 2.
A Huddersfield inquest heard the father-of-two, who was 36, said he had been the subject of abuse as a youngster and had self-harmed in the past.
He had thrown himself off a cliff in Aberystwyth but survived.
His mother went to his house on the morning of November 26 after he sent her a disturbing text message.
When she got no answer she called the police, who broke in and found him hanging from the loft.
Assistant deputy coroner Mark Hinchliffe said Mr Davies had asked for his organs to be donated. Me Hinchliffe added: “In some significant way others have benefited from this tragedy.”
He said no-one was to blame for Mr Davies’s death and recorded a verdict that he had killed himself.
