24-Year-Old Man Commits Suicide After Girlfriend Breaks Up With Him

A journalist committed suicide on Valentine's Day after splitting up with his girlfriend over a row about the sex drug Viagra, an inquest heard.

James Andrews, 24, was hit by a train on a railway line between Bristol and Bath after posting a message on Twitter to tell his friends he loved them.

He had previously rowed with his partner Eleanor Sharpe, a ballet dancer, over whether he had taken Viagra earlier in their relationship.

Mr Andrews, who lived in Finsbury Park, London, was staying in Bristol because Ms Sharpe was performing at the city's Hippodrome with the English National Ballet School.

The couple had planned to take a trip to Paris on the day Mr Andrews died.

An inquest at Flax Bourton Coroner’s Court in Bristol heard a statement by Ms Sharpe, who is the last known person to have seen him alive.

She said that the two had been in a 'normal physical relationship' after meeting in January.

She said that the two had been in a 'normal physical relationship' after meeting in January.

But the couple split up on February 11 this year.

Ms Sharpe said: 'I found out that he had lied to me about taking Viagra.

'We met outside the Bristol Hotel (where Mr Andrews was staying) and he said he was sorry.

'He had given me a gift which I found on Monday morning. I asked that we meet up to give it back.

'He would not speak to me on Tuesday morning and hung up on the phone.'

Mr Andrews was found dead near the former St Anne's Park railway station the following day - February 14.

Ms Sharpe saw a message left by him on Twitter, which read: 'I wish every single one of you a long and happy life. I love you.'

She said she went to his hotel, where staff told her that there had been an incident involving the police.
