Inquest into death of drowned student
Tuesday 28 September 2010
The inquest into the death of a student from Bristol who drowned after enjoying a night out is due to be held.
The body of Richard Staight, 20, was found in the sea at Portsmouth, Hampshire, on the morning of February 5 this year.
He had been last seen at around 12.15am that morning leaving the Tiger Tiger nightclub in Gunwharf Quays.
Hampshire Police said that his death was not being treated as suspicious.
Mr Staight, from Longwell Green, had been studying a degree in property marketing, design and development at the University of Portsmouth at the time of his death.
He was the only son of Julie and Paul Staight and younger brother to Sarah.
His family said in a statement: "To his many friends Richard was a loyal, sociable fun loving guy with a wicked sense of humour and infectious laugh who liked nothing more than a cheeky pint or kicking a ball around with his mates. He lived life to the full.
"His extended family was always very important to Richard and he will be remembered by them all for his loving, caring and supportive nature."
The inquest into his death will be resumed by Portsmouth and South East Hampshire coroner David Horsley on Tuesday.
