A YOUNG man was found hanging in his bedroom, an inquest has heard.

Nickolas Rogers, 19, was found at his home in Henry Wood Court, Saltney, by his brother Michael on December 11, 2017.

The inquest, delivered by John Gittins, coroner for North East Wales and Central, heard that his last occupation was a cleaner and he lived at home with his father Charles.

Nickolas had completed a plumbing course in Deeside and had a girlfriend.

Michael Rogers told the hearing that he had gone to check on Nickolas when he had received a text saying no-one had heard from him.

He let himself into the house and found his brother's bedroom door locked, he looked through the glass window above the door and found his brother hanging.

A statement read out by Nickolas' GP said he had a history of low moods as well as a lack of energy and he was considered to have depression with a low risk of suicide.

His family heard how he was told to book another consultation within three weeks for a review of his condition, but he had failed to do so.

A post mortem found a negative toxicology and no other underlying disease process – but he had a ligature mark around his neck.

John Gittins concluded the cause of death was suicide as it was evident from the locked door that Nickolas did not imagine he would be found.

It was heard that no note was left and he did not discuss with his family his trips to the doctor.

The coroner added: “I’m sure you miss him every moment you’re awake and you will continue to do so, as I expect, but that means he will not be forgotten.

“There are so many good things about this man that I hope will bring you comfort in the future.

“I offer my sincere condolences, loss of life at any age is difficult to comprehend and get over.”
