She was found in her hotel room in January

An inquest's heard Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan died from drowning as a result of being drunk.

The 46-year-old was found dead by a maid in her hotel room in London in January.

A toxicology report also showed she was four times over the legal driving limit.

Five miniature bottles of spirits were found in her hotel room.

The sitting also heard from Dr Seamus O'Ceallaigh - Ms O'Riordan's psychiatrist in Ireland.

Dr Ceallaigh said he believed she had 'an episode of mania or elevated mood'.

The coroner's heard there was no evidence she'd taken any drugs other than prescription medication.

Her death has been ruled accidental.

The coroner also offered her condolences to the O'Riordan family.

In a statement following the hearing, The Cranberries said: "Our heartfelt condolences go out to Dolores' children and her family and our thoughts are with them today.
