A 35-year-old tattoo artist was sadly found dead at his home in Widnes, an inquest heard.

The body of Dean Brabin was discovered by a family member at his home on Clapgate Crescent on November 5.

A written inquest read by area coroner Jaqueline Devonish at Cheshire Coroner's Court on Wednesday confirmed the cause of death to be attributed to cardio respiratory failure and is of 'natural causes'.

It is understood Mr Brabin was a tattoo artist at Primal Tattoo Studio at The Barnyards on Birchfield Road.
