The family of a Haggerston man broke down in tears after finding out the cause of his death.
Poplar Coroner’s Court heard how Saulius Paskevicius, 60, of St Martin’s Court had been a heavy drinker and how alcohol finally claimed his life in December 2014 - after a period of five days drinking.
At the inquest on May 20, coroner, Jacqueline Devonish, said a post mortem showed Mr Paskevicius had multiple organ failure due to acute pancreatitis.
In her verdict, she recorded this, along with underlying liver disease due to alcohol as the cause of death.
