Austin Powers star Verne Troyer’s death was suicide, a coroner in Los Angeles has said.

The actor, best known for playing Mini-Me in the Austin Powers franchise, died aged 49 in April.

He was born with a form of dwarfism that stopped him growing past 2ft 8ins.

He spent the final three weeks of his life in hospital in LA for alcohol intoxication, and following an autopsy, his death was ruled as suicide.
