A ROMSEY man was found at his home after he had died by hanging, an inquest heard.

Anthony Graham Mann, of Sutherland Close, was found dead in his flat by his father on November 2.

An inquest was opened into the 38-year-old's death by assistant coroner Sam Marsh at Winchester Coroner's Court.

A post mortem by pathologist Dr Adnan Al-Badri gave a preliminary cause of death as hanging (to be investigated).

Mrs Marsh adjourned the hearing for a full inquest to take place on June 9 next year.
