A woman who was found "unresponsive" in Banbury died from drug and alcohol related causes, an Oxfordshire coroner has ruled.

Anne-Marie Gale, 27, was discovered by paramedics and police on 15 January in Dover Avenue, Banbury.

She was taken to Horton General Hospital where she died.

A 49-year-old man from Banbury, who had been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter in relation to her death, has been released without charge.

At the time of Ms Gale's death, a post-mortem examination was inconclusive.

However at an inquest at Oxford Coroners Court, coroner Darren Salter recorded a verdict of drug and alcohol related death.
