Man, 34, lost booze battle.

A MAN who battled alcoholism died from his dependency aged just 34, a court heard yesterday.

Mohammed Abdul Qayyum, 34, of Brownroyd Avenue, Rawthorpe, made sporadic efforts to get help from agencies, but was unable to break free from the grip of his addiction.

A resumed inquest heard that on the afternoon of June 12 last year police were called to his home after concerns about him were expressed by his brother.

Mr Qayyum, a married man with a history of epilepsy, was found in the living room in front of the fire and paramedics confirmed his death.

Huddersfield Coroner's Court heard from his GP, Dr Jean Fisher, that "he had a history of consuming alcohol on a binge basis and was not fit to work because of this."

Toxicologist Richard Sykes said the amount of alcohol found in Mr Qayyum's body at the time of his death was equivalent to six pints of beer.

Dr Richard Knights who conducted the post mortem, said he had died from acute cardiac dysrhythmia and that chronic alcoholism had caused this.

Assistant deputy coroner Mary Burke's conclusion was that his death was alcohol-related.
