A 43-YEAR-OLD man has been found hanged in his Burnley home by neighbours.

Craig Monk, of Curlew Gardens, was discovered hanging from a loft hatch after neighbours went round because of concerns for his welfare.

The man, who lived on his own, had not been seen for some time before he was found dead.

A post-mortem carried out on Mr Monk’s body confirmed the cause of death was due to hanging.

An inquest was opened and adjourned by East Lancashire Coroner Richard Taylor, pending the toxicology results.
