A man was found dead with empty bottles of medication around him, an inquest has heard.

Craig Morris Pearce was found dead at his property in Northgate Street, in Great Yarmouth.

He was discovered by his ex-partner after family and friends became concerned for his welfare.

After entering the property on Sunday, March 7 this year, Mr Pearce was found with empty packaging and bottles of medication around him in his living room.

Norfolk assistant coroner Johanna Thompson ruled that the 28-year-old’s cause of death was drug related.

Ms Thompson offered condolences to the family and friends of Mr Pearce, who was born in Hertfordshire before moving to Great Yarmouth.

No members of Mr Pearce’s family or friends were present during the inquest.
