A 35-year-old beautician who was very sociable and "liked a party" tragically died after taking coke and liquid ecstasy, an inquest heard today.
Claire Anderson’s body was found badly bruised in her Doncaster home on July 11 last year, and at first cops treated it as a criminal investigation and arrested her friend.
But the coroner concluded the death was drugs related and her bruises likely happened whilst she was high – and Claire’s mate was released, reports Yorkshire Live.
DC Alex Britland of South Yorkshire Police told the court that Claire’s pal, a 38-year-old she met in Australia, said she was very sociable and liked a party.
The copper said: “He [the friend] said crack had a negative effect on her – but the other drugs seemed to make her happy and she would spend £100 a night on her lifestyle.
“Claire had an active social circle. He told her she should be more careful.”
Claire’s brother told the inquest he was “very close” to his sister – but spoke of her “chaotic lifestyle” and how he knew she was taking drugs including crack.

He said: "In the last six to eight weeks, she had been spending more money on drugs and alcohol."
Assistant Coroner Matt Stanbury told the victim’s family in court: “I can say that Claire's life was tragically cut short. She had lived a very full life and was very much loved by all of you.
The expert said Claire had a problematic relationship with booze and drugs and suffered from anxiety and depression.
"She had a passion for health and beauty and gained a number of qualifications in that field and started her own business (after spending £15,000 on training),” he added.
"Unfortunately that business had to be wound up in 2020 and Claire was declared bankrupt."
Pals described Claire as in a “bad way” – but one mate said she was “happy with no problems”.
