Student vlogger hanged himself after ‘sobbing uncontrollably’ after losing his iPhone during a night drinking

A university student was found hanged in his room just hours after ‘sobbing uncontrollably’ because he had lost his mobile phone.

Keen video blogger and journalism student Archie Day, 20, was so upset at the loss of the Apple iPhone after a night out in Manchester he was comforted by eight other students on October 5 last year.

Mr Day, who struggled with depression had told his parents at home in Bishop Stortford, Hertfordshire, he had been feeling much better. 

The day after the drunken night out at an Arctic Monkeys themed club night, Archie was found dead by a duty manager at Peel Park halls of residence at Salford University in Greater Manchester.
