We all hate spam, but this particular text message advertisement from a debt management company turned out to be deadly:
A text advert from a debt management company may have led to a young man's death, an inquest heard.
Distracted John Daglish, 22, walked into the path of a car, seconds after receiving the message.
His mobile phone, which had been in his hand when he was struck, was found smashed on the carriageway beside him. His family revealed the text that flashed on his phone was an unsolicited ad from a debt company.
