A backpacker from Wales who moved to Thailand was found hanged in his hotel room "after feeling pressure to come home".

Jack Davies, 21, died in Ko Phi Phi near Phuket in August last year after three years of travelling.

According to Wales Online, a police investigation ruled out foul play or third party involvement.

An inquest heard how Jack, known to his friends as Jay, had been out drinking with friends before his death.

His body was later found by his friends and emergency services rushed to the scene but declared him dead.

The Daily Mail reports that coroner Mark Layton said he could not be satisfied that Jack intended to kill himself. "He was found by a friend who had been out drinking in town with him and came back to find Jay hanging there.

"The question of intent remains unclear."

In a statement released last year, his parents Christine and Jonathan Davies said: "He was a lovely boy and everybody loved him."

His friends paid tribute to him on social media, describing him as a "little legend".

Lucy Dixon wrote: "Not only have you left footprints in paradise, you've left footprints across everyone's heart."
