AN out-of-work joiner died after drowning in a jacuzzi at a gay sauna in Sheffield, an inquest heard.

Alan Lander, aged 59, of Fircroft Road, Shiregreen, was found unconscious face down in the water by the manager of the Bronx sauna, on Savile Street East, Attercliffe.

Sheffield Coroner’s Court heard Alan, who had a history of alcoholism, was more than three times the drink-drive limit at the time of his death and had health problems which could have left him at risk of a fatal heart attack.
