A verdict of "accidental death" is returned at the inquest into the death of Tom Maynard.

The jury at the inquest into the death of cricketer Tom Maynard have returned an "accidental death" verdict.

The 23-year-old was found to have high levels of alcohol and drugs in his system when he was electrocuted stepping onto a live rail at a London train station last June.

An inquest into his death was held at Westminster Coroner's court on Tuesday, where it was revealed that the Welsh cricketer was nearly four times the legal drink-drive limit when the tragedy occurred.

It was later revealed that the cricketer had earlier been stopped by police after he was seen driving his black Mercedes in a dangerous manner.
