A fatal overdose

A MAN was found dead after taking an overdose of prescription drugs. Sean Dean, 47, was discovered at his home in Rishworth by one of his friends in June, an inquest heard.

A post mortem showed he had overdosed on propranolol. Coroner Roger Whittaker said he did not believe Mr Dean could have taken as much of the drug as he did without realising what the consequences would be.

He recorded that he took his own life.
