High-flyer film publicist, 33, dies suddenly of liver disease


Monday, June 15th, 2009 High-flyer film publicist, 33, dies suddenly of liver disease

‘A successful career girl died from liver disease aged 33 because of her lifestyle socialising with clients and colleagues, a coroner ruled yesterday.

Emma Pycroft, a high-flying film industry publicist, collapsed at home unaware she was suffering from the illness, usually related to excessive, long-term drinking.

Evidence given to the inquest at Westminster Coroner’s Court showed she was not a heavy drinker.

But coroner Dr Paul Knapman warned the disease strikes unpredictably and can be brought on by simply drinking on a regular basis.’
