A TROWBRIDGE pensioner was found dead in the chair of a stair lift, an inquest heard this week.

David Lewis, 76, died at his home in Ashmead, Trowbridge, on August 13.

Ian Singleton, the assistant coroner for Wiltshire and Swindon, ruled the cause of death was unascertainable.

He said: "From the evidence available it is impossible to say by what precise means David came by his death.”
