A DATE ended in tragedy when a 29-year-old woman was found dead in bed the following morning.

Mother-of-one Caroline Zoe Mowlam was found dead on Saturday, June 15, after going to the Isle of Wight Festival on Friday, June 14.

An inquest into her death, held on Wednesday, heard she had been taking a variety of prescription drugs and extra pills bought over the internet — hoping they would help her mental health issues.

The inquest heard Miss Mowlam, a triplet, had suffered years of enduring and complex mental health issues, including depression, self harm and emotional instability.

She had been assessed as 'impulsive and at risk of accidentally killing herself'.

She was being looked after by the Isle of Wight NHS Trust's mental health team but failed to keep her most recent appointments, and was excited about going to the festival.

After spending the Friday at the festival, she died at a flat in Newport, after spending the night there with a man she had recently started seeing.

The man woke his lodger up, saying: "I invited someone back last night and she died in her sleep."

Paramedics and police quickly established the death, although unexpected, was not a suspicious one.

In a statement to police, the man told of his devastation at finding the body.

Isle of Wight Coroner Caroline Sumeray said: "There was quite a cocktail of drugs in her bloodstream.

"Her alcohol level was a smidge under the legal drink drive limit, which gives you an understanding of how drunk she was — not massively.

"The cause of death was respiratory depression due to the drugs — not massive doses but a combined effect."

Mrs Sumeray said it was particularly heartbreaking to discover Miss Mowlam was a triplet.

She said: "My heart broke when I read that. It adds a poignancy.

"It's clear she struggled with life and had a number of issues.

"Mixing internet drugs with prescription drugs is never a good idea.

"There's no suggestion whatsoever she took her own life."

She concluded a drug and alcohol related death.
