A 35-year-old Whitechapel man who was recently pilloried by work colleagues after a tub of male moisturising cream was spotted in his locker was found hanged at his home in Vallance Road yesterday.
Toby Dell, a forklift truck engineer and father of four, had been the butt of jibes at work ever since a colleague noticed the scented cream in his locker prior to a shower in July.
His wife, Tracy, 32, told The Whitechapel Whelk: “Toby was a good husband and a loving father, but to find out that he was a secret moisturist is something I’ll never be able to erase from my mind.
“I sat down with the kids the day after he hanged himself and we all agreed it was the only option and the right thing to do to avoid bringing further shame on the family”
This latest incident comes just two months after a man from neighbouring Spitalfields threw himself under a bus after a neighbour spotted him in a branch of Boots buying a tub of mango and pineapple-scented post-shaving balm
