A Sad Sad Suicide

A British tourist hanged himself after a row with his girlfriend during a "make or break" holiday in the Canary Islands, an inquest heard.


Nick Crook, 47, returned to his hotel room in Fuerteventura after his partner Vanessa Grant said she was leaving him following an argument about him not socialising with other holidaymakers.

The father-of-three was thought to have deliberately left the door of their room open in the hope of being found in time - but he was already dead by the time Miss Grant arrived back three hours later, the inquest was told.

He split up with his wife Nicola in 2005 and last year began a relationship with Miss Grant but in the days leading up the holiday he had told his family the romance was in trouble.
