A 48-year-old man who was visiting Oxford for business died after a drinking binge, an inquest heard.
Emrys Llewellyn, of Llygad Yr Haul, Glynneath, Neath, was found on the floor of his bedroom at the Old Black Horse pub in St Clement’s on May 23.
The inquest at Oxfordshire Coroner’s Court yesterday heard that Mr Llewellyn, a machine operator, had 349mg of alcohol in his blood when he died – more than four times the drink drive limit.
Mr Llewellyn died after choking on his vomit while intoxicated.
