A MAN found dead in a supermarket’s toilets was discovered after a cleaner was unable to get into a cubicle, an inquest heard.

The inquest into the death of Peter Donnelly Andrews was opened in a hearing at Bournemouth town hall by area coroner for Dorset, Brendan Allen, on July 9.

Mr Andrews, 48, was born in Glasgow and was living in Poole.

He was not in work at the time of his death at Asda in West Quay Road, Poole.

He was found after a cleaner came into the male toilets at the supermarket and was unable to access one of the cubicles, coroner’s officer for Dorset, Matt Cave, told the inquest.

The cleaner spoke to their manager, who entered the cubicle and found Mr Andrews unresponsive, Mr Cave said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination was carried out by Dr Adel Abuomar Muhaisen at Holly Tree Lodge on June 14.

Dr Muhaisen ruled the cause of death as drug intoxication.

The inquest was adjourned by Mr Allen until February 6 at 10am, with further investigations to take place and statements already requested.

As previously reported, Dorset Police is not treating Mr Andrews’ death as suspicious.
