A SOUTHAMPTON man was found hanging by his flatmate, an inquest opening heard.

Kajetan Champlewski, 21, lived with Imogen White in St Denys Road.

Winchester Coroner's Court heard that the pair lived fairly separate lives.

On April 15, Ms White returned home from work at 5.30pm. Around four hours later, she received a text message from Mr Champlewski's mother asking if she had seen him.

Ms White checked his bedroom and found the body.

Police and paramedics arrived at the scene and Mr Champlewski was pronounced dead.

In a post mortem report, consultant pathologist Dr Vipal Foria states the preliminary cause of death as asphyxiation from hanging.

Area coroner Rosamund Rhodes-Kemp adjourned the full inquest to November 11.
