A Manchester doctor took his own life by ingesting a poison he ordered online from Malaysia - that Border Force officers were reportedly powerless to prevent being sent on to him.

Oldham-born Dr Jonathan Shaw, who lived in Didsbury and was 55, was found dead at an address in Oldham on December 2, 2023. A coroner ruled after an inquest that Dr Shaw took his own life 'against a background of a mixed anxiety and depressive disorder' through 'the intentional ingestion of a poisonous substance which he had procured through an online purchase from a supplier in Malaysia'.

The package was intercepted at Stansted after 'intelligence about the Malaysian company and information about concerns for Dr Shaw's welfare and the risk to life' was recieved, a new report reveals.
