A DRIVING instructor died after overdosing on prescription pills.

Jacqueline Wright, 46, Hawk Crescent, Bourne, was found unconscious at her home by her husband Martin on August 19.

Mrs Wright, who had a history of self-harming, was taken to Peterborough City Hospital but died shortly after arriving. A post-mortem found a high level of dothiepin in her system, a chemical found in the anti-depressant dosulepin.

At an inquest in Stamford on Tuesday, coroner Gordon Ryall recorded a narrative verdict.

He said: “There is some evidence of her having personal problems but no evidence she had threatened to take her own life. There is no evidence of intent.”
