A man hanged himself after suffering excruciating pain while waiting to have his wisdom tooth extracted on the NHS, an inquest has heard.

Anthony Hoskins was found dead in his flat in Southampton by police on April 3.

The 38-year-old, who worked for an employment agency and had been on an NHS waiting list to have his wisdom tooth removed.

A statement from his mother Shirley said Mr Hoskins began to complain of severe tooth ache in January.

After seeing a dentist, Mr Hoskins's condition got worse and he started taking 'large amounts' of mixed paracetamol and ibuprofen painkillers, the inquest heard.

PC Simon Collins told the hearing at Winchester Coroner's Court (pictured) police had been called by Mr Hoskins's mother, who said she had not heard from him for a couple of days and he had gone home from work with an illness the previous week
