Piotr Emil Martyniuk, 24, of Hallfield Road, Manningham, was discovered in Northcliffe Park on April 5 this year - the walker's attention was drawn by a a bright red rug near a tree.

Paramedics and police were called and Mr Martyniuk was identified by his Polish driving licence, he also had a Bradford library card in his wallet.

Police eventually managed to trace a man who had lived with him when he first came to the UK in 2012 who said Mr Martyniuk was "a bit of a loner who concentrated on working."

He had been signed up with a recruitment agency in Bradford and had a UK National insurance number.

No suicide note was found in his bed-sit but at an inquest in Bradford yesterday, assistant coroner Dr Dominic Bell concluded Mr Martyniuk's death was suicide.
