His mum Pam told the i nquest t hat James, originally from Stocktonon-tees, “lit up a room when he walked into it”.
She added: “He was loved by everybody he met – 450 people attended his funeral, including friends and family who travelled from as far away as Dubai.
“He was a fantastic doctor and surgeon.
“The world is a darker place without him.” Liverpool coroner Anita Bhardwaj recorded a verdict of suicide.
