A "LOVING, funny and musically talented" young man died after he fell a Southampton car park.

Thomas Clarke, 32, of Hazel Grove, Southampton, was discovered at the bottom of Grosvenor Square multi-storey carpark on June 28.

Despite a member of the public and ambulance crews performing CPR, Mr Clarke was pronounced dead at the scene.

An inquest into his death found that he took his own life.

The court heard how Mr Clarke was a health care worker caring for children with autism.

His family have told of their heartbreak following their loss.

Graham Clarke, Thomas' father, said: "He had a good character and people warmed to him, he was a great person to have around."

His mum added: "I loved him to bits, he was my soul mate. He was very talented, he played piano and guitar and he has left us with some lovely music to listen to.

"He was a jokester and a prankster, he really was a lovely person.

"He didn't deserve what happened to him and I'll never get over it."

Mr Clarke's sister told of how he was a "loving, funny and musically talented young man".

"He was loved and I think he knew how much he was loved," she said.

"As much as he was troubled, he had a good life."

The inquest heard that Mr Clarke was living with paranoid psychosis and had been taking medication for his condition.

Six months before his death, the dosage of his medication was dropped.

The coroner ruled his cause of death as multiple injuries caused by a fall from height.
