A MAN was taken to Southampton Hospital after being found hanged on a cruise ship.

Jozsef Tamas Saller, 29, died on board a Carnival Cruise vessel. His body was discovered on May 9.

It is unclear where the boat was at the time and why Mr Saller was on board.

A post mortem report by pathologist Dr Victoria Elliott states the preliminary cause of death as hanging.

The full inquest into the death of Mr Saller, who was from Budapest, will be held on November 19 in Winchester.
