At his inquest, coroner’s officer Malcolm Stewart told Chelmsford Coroner’s Court police were satisfied there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Mr Hurford’s death.
Coroner Eleanor McGann said she was “satisfied and sure” that Mr Hurford intended to kill himself due to his history of self-harm and the extensive notes he left behind.
