A 21-YEAR-OLD former grammar school pupil was found hanged at his family home in Poole, an inquest heard.

Amandeep Singh Sadra, known as Am, had returned to Broadstone after graduating from Portsmouth University, Assistant Dorset Coroner Brendan Allen was told.

The Bournemouth inquest heard Mr Sadra had been working in a supermarket while searching for graduate employment.

The coroner was told he had a history of depression and had run away from home at the age of 16 because he was stressed about school work.

During his second year at university, the Biology student was detained under the Mental Health Act after being found at notorious suicide spot Beachy Head in East Sussex.

He is also known to have taken an overdose in his first year at university.

The inquest heard Mr Sadra was found hanging in a bedroom at the Anvil Close home by his brother, Vijay, on January 11 this year.

His father, Lakhbir, said his son had stopped taking anti-depressant tablets when he returned home from university. He said he was "not very happy" about job rejections.

Mr Allen recorded a conclusion of suicide.

Anyone who needs support or advice in relation to suicide is urged to call the Samaritans on 116 123.
