Toby Kirkup dead latest – Emmerdale and Peaky Blinders star, 48, dies just HOURS after being discharged from hospital


AN ACTOR who played roles in Peaky Blinders and Emmerdale died alone just hours after being sent home from hospital, an inquest has heard.

Toby Kirkup, 48, was admitted to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary on August 29 after he had been experiencing chest pains and a tingling sensation in his arms.

Doctors diagnosed him with gastritis and he was sent home back to Titanic Mills in Slaithwaite.

But later that afternoon his condition worsened, with him beginning to vomit before he eventually suffered a cardiac arrest, Bradford Coroner’s Court heard.

A post mortem established that his death was a result of natural causes – but his family have had concerns about his treatment.
