A FORMER teacher hanged himself in his bedroom.
Mark Waldron, 37, was found at his home in King's Drive, Birstall, by his father on June 6, a Huddersfield inquest heard.
Paramedics went to the house, but found Mr Waldron dead.
He had struggled with alcohol addiction for several years. It is believed he had been drinking solidly for five weeks before his death.
Mr Waldron had suffered depression and had tried to end his life in May. He had been prescribed the sedative diazepam.
He had 282 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood - just 18mg below the level for alcoholic poisoning.
Coroner Roger Whittaker recorded a verdict of asphyxiation due to hanging.
