More news, no ads


Council chiefs have vowed to carefully consider the results of a 'tragic' suicide case in which they were criticised.

An inquest into the death of Maciej Szmyt heard that the way the 35-year-old's accommodation was allocated by South Holland District Council may have been a factor in him taking his own life.

A spokesman for the district council said: “We were extremely saddened to hear about the death of Mr Szmyt and we would like to take this opportunity to pass on our sincere condolences to those family and friends who were affected by this tragic case.

“We fully acknowledge the Coroner’s inquest report and will carefully consider these findings, taking any appropriate actions as a result.”

Mr Szmyt was found dead in his bungalow on August 10 last year, having felt isolated from friends when given accommodate at The Anglia Motel in Fleet.
