An amateur boxer from Royston died by taking his own life earlier this year, a coroner confirmed on Thursday.

Josh Mednick, 25, had trained at Thomas A Becket Boxing Gym in Cambridge and died at his home in Phillips Avenue on Saturday, May 2.

People have since taken to Twitter to express their grievances. A week ago, Carys tweeted: “Every time I see/hear something that reminds me of you I just well up. Won’t ever get easy. Miss you bud @josh_mednick hope you’re resting easy.”
