Mr Evans' address was given at the inquest, held at Gravesend's Old Town Hall today, as Oasis Caravan Park in Almeria, Spain.

Sgt Adam Hewett of the British Transport Police, giving evidence, said: "A statement taken from the driver of the train indicated this was a non-suspicious death.

"A passport was found along with a number of notes. He was identified by finger prints stored on the police national computer."

Coroner Roger Hatch said: "I have no alternative than to record that the death of Timothy Evans was due to him taking his own life."
