Timothy Brockhurst, of Stoke Heath near Market Drayton, was found not breathing in his tent in Weston Park on 19 August.

The inquest heard he was a "regular user of recreational drugs", but coroner Andrew Haigh said he "took more than his body could cope with".

The verdict given by the coroner was "non-dependent abuse of drugs".
