A WITNEY man was found hanged just a week before Christmas.

Sam Kiff, 25, took his own life on December 18 last year, Oxfordshire Coroner[s Court was told yesterday.

He was living at his girlfriend’s house in Station Road at the time of his death.

The court heard he had been to the doctors in November complaining of headaches and a year previously told his GP he had felt depressed.

Coroner Darren Salter said: “The conclusion is one of suicide.”
