    BBC Radio Devon

    A former Royal Marine who suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) died from taking a cocktail of drugs.

    Stuart Shuttleworth, 31, who had joined the Royal Marines aged 19 and was part of 42 Commando Lima company, was deployed to Helmland in Operation Herrick 14 in 2011.

    The inquest in Plymouth heard that he suffered with PTSD which contributed to his death.

    Toxicology during his post-mortem revealed he had taken heroin, injected anabolic steroids and taken Ecstasy as well as anti-depressants and his cause of death was drugs misuse.

    The senior south Devon and Plymouth coroner Ian Arrow said the combination of drugs meant Mr Shuttleworth would have died in his sleep as he sat on a sofa in his flat in the Royal William Yard in Plymouth one day last May.

    Mr Arrow recorded a drug related death conclusion.
