TRIBUTE TO TRAGIC SON; Open verdict at inquest.

Byline: CHRIS HOLE

A GRIEVING mum paid tribute to her popular and loving son who died at home in tragic circumstances.

Dale Robinson, 32, lost his life after taking a lethal mix of alcohol and medication.

SO Dale Mum Beryl Robinson, of Eston, said he was a "lovely lad". She said: "He had loads of friends and would do anything for anybody. It's just unfortunate that his life ended so early. He was such a nice lad and the church was packed at his funeral."

An inquest into Dale's death took place at Teesside Coroner's Court.

Dad Kevin Robinson told how his son's body was found at the home they shared on Highfield Road, Eston, on December 16 last year.

Dale, who had a son from an earlier LOVING: Robinson relationship, had been out and returned home in the early hours. His dad was woken by a call from Dale's partner. She had received a text from him saying he "had taken his tablets". Mr Robinson said: "I went into the bedroom and found him on the floor." He said the unemployed plant operator was a regular drinker, had suffered depression and was taking medication. Jennifer Glenton, Dale's partner, said they had fallen out the night before over his drinking. She said the text told her she wouldn't see him again. Pathologist Dr Jan Lowe said Dale died due to toxicological effects. Levels of alcohol in his body were four times higher than the drink-drive limit.

Deputy Coroner Anthony Eastwood recorded an open verdict - saying he couldn't be sure of Dale's intentions.
