Doctors diagnosed him with gastritis and he was sent home back to Titanic Mills in Slaithwaite.

But later that afternoon his condition worsened, with him beginning to vomit before he eventually suffered a cardiac arrest, Bradford Coroner’s Court heard.

A post mortem established that his death was a result of natural causes – but his family have had concerns about his treatment.
