Jordan Collett, 22, died after a house party in Southampton

A coroner warned against leaving unused medication at home after the death of a carpenter who mixed alcohol and cocaine with strong painkillers that were left in his friend's house.

22-year-old Jordan Collett died after a house party in Southampton, where he was taking painkillers prescribed to patients in the past few weeks of life, the court heard from Winchester Coroner.

The pathologist Dr. Eleanor Jaynes said that although the alcohol, cocaine and pain reliever content per se is not fatal, the combined effect is.

Mr. Collett, who was training as a boxer, had drunk with his father Paul before going to his friend Bradley Hayes 'farewell party – where he took the pills that Mr. Hayes' great aunt had heard, the investigation said.

He died on November 11th at Southampton General Hospital.

Grahame Short, a senior medical examiner, warned relatives to properly dispose of dangerous drugs to avoid similar incidents.

Mr. Short said, "I think this case shows the dangers of leaving unused medication after someone dies.

"It is important that such drugs, when not in use, be returned to the pharmacy and destroyed to prevent this type of death."

Mr. Collett's father paid tribute to his son after the exam and said, “He was a fun-loving guy and he loved to smile. He was loved very much. It's just tragic. & # 39;

He added that around 600 people attended his son's funeral and more than 30 people attended a football game in his memory after his death.

Jordan was a member of the AFC Gulf Western, which organized the memorial game.

Team manager Stefano Centola said at the time: “We wanted to pay tribute to him. He was a very nice boy who is hard to find these days. He was a very good player. & # 39;
