Suicide verdict recorded on Peel man

An inquest has recorded a verdict of suicide on a Peel man suffering from severe depression.

Philip John Brown, 57, was found dead on Christmas Eve last year in public toilets on Victoria Road in the town.

He was due to return to the mental health unit, Grianagh Court, later that day where he was being treated for depression and Bipolar disorder.

The hearing was told he'd bought a craft knife which he used to cut the left side of his neck.
