The flat in Leopold Road, Brighton, where Simon Allen's remains were discovered

First published in News by , Assistant News Editor

The skeleton of a man has been found in the lounge of his city centre flat – almost two years after his death.

Simon Allen’s remains were discovered when deep cleaners went to his home in Leopold Road, Brighton.

The skeleton of Mr Allen, who is believed to have been 50 when he died, was discovered dressed only in socks lying behind his armchair in the living room of the flat on November 19.

Eleven days earlier, his landlord, housing association Affinity Sutton, and bailiffs went into the first floor flat after numerous rent bills went unpaid, building up “significant arrears”.

But they did not notice Mr Allen’s body. After his inquest his inquest on Wednesday coroner Veronica Hamilton-Deeley said she was “particularly saddened” that a relatively young man had not been missed.

She could not discover a cause of death and recorded an open verdict, adding it was believed Mr Allen died in December 2010.

She added: “There is no suggestion that anybody should, or could, have done anything different. It seems that he chose his somewhat reclusive lifestyle.”

No family or friends could be traced and there were few personal items in the flat, which Mr Allen moved into in 1999.

Paul Hanscomb, 45, who lives in a ground floor flat said: “He was a heavy drinker. I used to hear him banging around in the hallway and up the stairs when he came home at night.

Slight smell

“But we all keep ourselves to ourselves here and we thought he’d moved out.”

Chris Dunbar, who also lives in a first floor flat, moved in after Mr Allen died.

He said: “It was a shock. I think it’s quite sad really and maybe should have been investigated a bit sooner.”

He said there was a slight musty smell in the hallway before Mr Allen’s body was discovered, but “nothing strong”.

CID Officers from Sussex Police said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Mr Allen’s death.

'Deeply saddened'

Tracy Evans, head of housing in the south for Affinity Sutton, said: “We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of Mr Allen.

“There was no indication that there were any problems nor that he had any additional support needs and he was a model tenant.”

Mr Allen was one of a growing number of people in Brighton to have a welfare funeral – when they have no known family or friends to arrange the burial or cremation.

The number of welfare funerals in Brighton has more than doubled in the past five years, from 36 in 2006/7 to 79 in 2011/12.

Beggers belief how somebody can be "missing" as such for 2 years and noboby bothers to check that they are OK.

I blame the snot Greens for this. If they were more bothered about looking after local communities that flittering away my money on new letter headings that omit Mr. and Mrs etc, perhaps this poor soul would not have had to rot away without a proper burial.

Disgusting service.

Some landlords 'But they did not notice Mr Allen’s body'. And they didn't have a look round? Just shows you how these so called houseing 'associations' operate. The coroner should have slammed them for not noticing this poor guy's body...

I'm sure someone will be able to blame them for: bad weather, global debt/poverty, marriage breakdown, abortions, sun spots, war, famine, pestilence and myriad other items too. Maybe even the death of Princess Diana and the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa?

Crystal Ball, your back with your incisive yet misguided comments.
The green party have only gained power by fooling the students into thinking that they will actually make a difference.
The only thing politicians want is money, hence the grab for a salary.

The only way forward for this country against such mega manufacturing powers such a China, which by the way produces more CO2 in a day than we do in a year is to disregard any green policies and go 'BROWN'.
I suggest you face reality. Global warming is a myth !!!

I agree Juleyanne. It seems we have no time for our neighbours these days. When we first moved to our current house over 30 years ago, we knew all our neighbours names at our end of the road and even if it was only on Hello terms (though many became friends) we looked out for each other. The new neighbours keep themselves to themselves and don't go out of their way to be friendly.

I blame the snot Greens for this. If they were more bothered about looking after local communities that flittering away my money on new letter headings that omit Mr. and Mrs etc, perhaps this poor soul would not have had to rot away without a proper burial.

Disgusting service.
I'm not sure if anyone else has pointed this out to you but this man is thought to have died in December 2010, before the Greens were elected with no overall majority. I am by no means a Green voter but I think it's really disgusting that you've used this man's sad death as an excuse to make pointless, erroneous, criticisms.

Yes exactly and the house was Affinity Sutton Housing Association who should have checked on this poor tenant at least after some weeks if his rent was not paid. Unbelievable.

Algeria Touchshriek: you are condemning yourself out of your own mouth. Wipe the spittle off your computer screen and go and have a lie down.

To make a serious point on this sad story, it does seem that alcohol played an important part in this man's decline and demise. This addiction (if it was indeed such) may have made him difficult to approach, so I wouldn't be too hard on the neighbours.

I suggest that alcohol is way too cheap in supermarkets, and somewhat too expensive in pubs. If he'd drunk in pubs, then perhaps he'd have had some mates who might have noticed that he wasn't around.
The trouble is, most politicians are petrified of offending the big retailers, and have been pussyfooting around this issue for years.

Another matter of policy that might need looking at is the direct payment by the DSS to landlords. This may or may not have happened in this case, but it could easily lead to the death of a tenant going undetected. It is also a policy that encourages landlords to be indifferent to how their tenants behave: I have direct experience of this.

Fret ye not ... direct payment will be phased out and once the government has whittled away as much as it can from the rent and council tax benefit bill, direct payment will be phased out. Something to look forward to come October ;-)

I cannot understand how a Housing Association could miss this. But as I have always thought as long as you pay the Rent, they have no reason to communicate with you. Any affect on the Rent then they will visit you, this is after a letter. No way could anybody legitamately walk round a property and not notice the remains of was once a human being. Wonder is the rent arrears will be claimed of the estate. Also why didnt the gas and electric companies notice.
So sad that a tenant was ignored for that length of time.

It's easy to blame somebody

I live next door to Simon he had died before I moved in. It was so tragic to of heard this news. He was alcohol reliant so never spoke with anyone. You could say he would not speak to you. I know this as the guy in the bottom of the house told me. The council checked my flat on the 3rd 6th and 12th month of me living here and I did being it to there attention on all occasions that nobody lives next door never heard a sound etc. so if faults to blames its with the council. This house is not the nicests of houses as its not all that friendly.
