Men ‘drank themselves to death’

‘Two men drank themselves to death after one of them received a payout for being mistakenly identified as a murder suspect, an inquest has heard.

Gareth Roberts, 47, and his flatmate Ian Stedham, 43, were found dead in their Pwllheli flat in February.

Mr Roberts had received £10,000 in compensation from the Daily Mail after being wrongly identified as a suspect in the murders of five prostitutes.

The coroner recorded a verdict of death as a result of alcohol abuse on both.’
