A vulnerable man was found dead on a sofa just hours after bleach was poured over his head in a drunken prank, an inquest has heard.
Martyn Evans, 25, spent the night before he died drinking “heavily” with four friends – who then decided to have “a bit of fun” at his expense.
The two men and two women, aged between 25 and 30, filmed their “appalling” treatment of Mr Evans, which included trying to shave his eyebrows.
They also poured bleach and washing-up liquid on his head, and put a banana up his nostrils and in his mouth.
The inquest at Avon Coroner’s Court heard Mr Evans was more intoxicated than the rest of the group and was “clearly out of it” as the antics went on.
