An inquest into the death of a British man last year in Bangkok has ruled he died of alcohol poisoning after drinking 20 bottles of lager, Sambuca shots, Jack Daniels plus four buckets of vodka and Red Bull during a 36-hour booze bender.

Peter Nicholson, 29, started drinking before he left the UK at Manchester Airport where he downed a pint of lager before hitting the drinks trolley for beers with Jack Daniels and coke chasers during the flight to Bangkok.

After a spot of sightseeing Nicholson and his mate went back on the booze during which time he drank the four buckets of vodka and Red Bull, at least 20 beers and several Sambuca shots.

The engineer, from Wigan, was found dead in his hotel by his friend Daniel Wilson the morning after the pair arrived in Thailand for a two week holiday.

Tests done during the post-mortem found his blood alcohol level was 341 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 mililitres of blood.

Recording a finding of accidental death, coroner Alison Mutch said: “The alcohol readings are very high and carry a high risk of death.

“This must have been a dreadful event in your lives and very hard for us to imagine how awful it must be to wave somebody off and to see them in good health knowing they have gone on holiday to Thailand.”
