Linguistics under- graduate Tom Reid, 19, had been at University College London for barely 24 hours. The student unions website promised cheap drinks at Sundays 13-a-head event at Koko, Camden. St Pancras Coroner Dr Andrew Reid yesterday ordered toxicology tests to rule out drink or drugs as cause of death. But he said at Sunday lunch with his parents in London before starting university, Mr Reid had complained of rapid beating in his chest. There will be a full inquest in January. Friends today described Mr Reid, from Leeds, as a clean living person who did not take drugs, smoke or drink heavily. Close friend Beth Lilley, 19, a student who had known Mr Reid since school, said: All of us are devastated. Tom was the kindest person Ive ever met. He was incredibly intelligent , a wonderful person, and a talented actor and musician. She added: I dont think theres any way his death could be alcohol-related. by georgina littlejohn Tragic student didnt drinkalot,sayfriends Grief: Beth Lilley with Tom Reid, who died early on Monday ArchAeologists have uncovered what is believed to be the rotating din- ing room of roman emperor Nero. the 2,000-year-old coenatio rotunda was created inside the 1st century Palace that Nero built as his home on the Palatine hill in rome. Nero was famed for his lavish enter- taining and debauched lifestyle -- although historians now dispute whether he actually fiddled while rome burned. Archaeologists think remains they discovered are the dining area described in a section on the Domus Aurea, or golden house, by the ancient historian suetonius in his lives of the caesars. he wrote: the chief banqueting room was circular, and revolved per- petually night and day in imitation of the motion of the celestial bodies. All the dining rooms had ceil- ings of fretted ivory, the panels of which could slide back and let a rain of flowers, or of perfume from hidden sprin- klers, fall on his guests. the room moved thanks to roman civil engineering involving spheres underneath powered by canals of water. the dining room was one of the many attrac- tions of the pleasure dome of the emperor, who reigned from AD 54 to 68. Archaeologist Maria Antonietta tomei said: this discovery has no equal among ancient roman archi- tectural finds. experts have so far uncovered several pillars, a key one being four metres in diam- eter, and a perimeter wall. the site was built after the fire that destroyed rome, and historians believe that Nero allowed it to rage just so he could build his palace. he was unlikely to have had many happy family meals there -- he killed his stepfather, mother, wife and unborn child to keep power and committed suicide in AD 68. BANNiNg smoking in public places has made no difference to the number of people who smoke, an Nhs report says. the paper from the Nhs information centre states there was no significant difference in the number of people who smoked before and after the law changed in 2007. it found men over the age of 35 smoke fewer cigarettes than before the ban, but younger men have started smoking more since it was introduced.
