Suicide plunge.

A vertigo sufferer was found dead after throwing himself off a block of flats.

Anthony Bell, 54, of Hill House, in Spital Tongues, Newcastle, fell from the 11th floor of the block where he had lived for nearly a year.

It is thought Mr Bell went to the laundry room and used a chair to climb a five metre high wall to get on to the building's roof.

Although Mr Bell suffered vertigo, his walking stick was found on the roof and Newcastle Coroner, David Mitford, said there was evidence of a determined effort to take his own life. He recorded that Mr Bell killed himself.

Family confirmed Mr Bell had started to drink heavily and was on anti-depressants since he split from his wife.
