A MAN with a history of alcohol problems is thought to have drunk himself to death.

Karl Leslie Dancer, a 38-year-old machine operator, was found dead at his flat in Norwich Road, Bournemouth, an inquest heard.

He is thought to have died on December 16, 2017, due to excess alcohol.

Coroner's officer Ken McEwan said: "Karl Dancer was known to be alcohol-dependent and had a history of high blood pressure. He was found deceased at home.

"There was nothing suspicious about his death."

Coroner Rachel Griffin adjourned the case until a provisional inquest date of July 18.
