Sinead O’Connor died of natural causes

Sinead O’Connor, who was found unresponsive at her London home last year, died of natural causes, a coroner has said.

The Irish singer died in July aged 56.

No medical cause for her death was given at the time, with London Inner South Coroner’s Court saying a post-mortem would be conducted and the results could take several weeks.

Now, the coroner has confirmed she died of natural causes and said it was no longer investigating her death.

O’Connor was best known for her 1990 song Nothing Compares 2 U.

The track made her a global star, partly due to its iconic video.

She was also known for her outspoken views on subjects such as religion, war and feminism.
