A 23-year-old dad who died suddenly killed himself, a coroner has ruled.

Aaron Joyce was found dead at a house in Thomas Road, Clacton, on January 16 after emergency services attended the property with concerns for his safety.

An outpouring of grief immediately followed with his mum Wendy Farthing describing him as a 'true gentle giant' and a 'loveable rogue'.

She said: "My son touched so many lives. I'm overwhelmed and blessed by all the beautiful comments and donations - he was very loved, that's for sure."
