AN INQUEST has been opened into the death of Brian Jackson, whose death on Holland Place, Highfield, Sheffield, sparked a major emergency operation last week.

The coroner adjourned the inquest while officers investigate the circumstances surrounding “a possible chemical suicide”.

The body of Mr Jackson, aged 30, was found by his flatmates beside a quantity of noxious chemicals last Monday, April 18.

The entire street was evacuated and more than 40 emergency services staff mobilised while Health Protection Agency officers made sure the area was safe.
