A dad hanged himself hours after received a letter ordering him to pay £11,000 in backdated child support for his grown up son.
Ian Sandywell was said to have been 'crying and upset' after receiving the order and texted his 22 year-old son Ben: "Delete me out of your life please. I'm going to hang myself."
Hours later the car salesman's wife Jo-ann Balsamo, found him dead in their garage when she returned home from work.
An inquest into his death heard the normally "laid back" 45-year-old had been upset by a demand that he pay the money back within two years.
