(EXPRESS) — A TEENAGE lacrosse star killed himself after being summoned to court for possessing cannabis worth 50p (75 cents), an inquest heard.

Ex-head boy Edward Thornber, 17, was caught smoking the drug while on holiday in Cornwall.

He hanged himself two days after receiving the summons. Law firm Pannone, acting for his family, says the paperwork was wrongly processed and Edward, of Didsbury, Manchester, should have been given only a warning.
