A 24-YEAR-old man took his own life on New Year's Eve, an inquest heard.

Anthony Sebbage was found dead on December 31 last year by his partner, Adele Hawker, at their family home in Middlemarsh, Leominster at around 6pm.

A post mortem said the cause of death was hanging.

The inquest at Herefordshire Coroner's Court heard he had a history of depression since 2012 and had sought help from his doctor.

Mr Sebbage, who had children, saw the doctor a number of time from September to December last year due to his low mood.

He had described suicidal thoughts but said he had a supportive family.

Mr Sebbage's mum, Jenny Brogan, said: "Thank you to everybody that helped, especially the medics and emergency services, the police who went out a few times over concerns for safety. I want to say thank you to them."

She added: "He will never be forgotten. Even though he suffered from depression, Anthony was a wonderful, loving son to us and brilliant big brother to his two brothers and sister and was extremely loved and wanted in return. He was a fantastic dad to his children who he loved with all his heart and he has left a large gap in the family and the Leominster community."

Coroner Mark Bricknell recorded a conclusion of suicide.
