An events planner gassed herself to death after she was left heartbroken by the break up of an affair she was having with a married man, an inquest heard.
Emily Henthorn, 25, from Leigh, Greater Manchester, had harboured hopes of moving into a house with Andrew Hardman and settling down with him after they began an illicit romance when helping plan weddings and christenings at a masonic hall.
She met Mr Hardman in October 2018 and it is thought the pair began an affair in January. During the relationship they began house-hunting together and saw several properties.
However, when Mr Hardman confessed to his wife about having a mistress, the couple agreed to save their marriage and he ended his five month affair with Miss Henthorn.
