CARETAKER Tim Smith was found hanging in the main hall at Wimborne’s Allendale Centre, an inquest heard.

Police were alerted after staff at the centre discovered notes written by Mr Smith when they arrived for work on Monday morning.

A post-mortem examination was carried out on Wednesday and Mr Smith’s cause of death remains unascertained, pending toxicology results.
