The inquest into the death of a teenager from Carlisle has heard that he died from head injuries after falling around 40 feet from a balcony whilst on holiday.

Tom McNeill had been on an organised pub crawl in the Bulgarian resort of Sunny Beach the night he died, but a friend said that he wasn't very drunk. A pillow was seen by a witness on top of the wall of the balcony and it's thought the 17 year old might have fallen off after falling asleep.
