British actor Colin Tarrant committed suicide after becoming depressed, an inquest has heard.
The TV star, who played Inspector Andrew Monroe in British cop drama The Bill for several years, was found at his home in Bristol, England with knife wounds on 25 January (12). He died of his injuries in hospital a day later.
During an inquest into his death at Flax Bourton Coroners Court in Bristol, a coroner ruled the actor took his own life after falling into a deep depression over his financial problems.
The court heard Tarrant, 59, had been troubled over the sale of his house, which fell through for a second time before he took his own life.
