DJ Steve Wright's cause of death was a ruptured ulcer in his stomach, according to his death certificate. 

The long-standing presenter, who hosted shows on BBC radio for more than four decades, died suddenly in February aged 69. 

The certificate stated that the causes of death were acute peritonitis and a perforated gastric peptic ulcer. 

Peritonitis is an infection of the lining of the abdomen. 

Wright joined the corporation in the 1970s and hosted programmes including the popular afternoon shows on BBC Radio 1 and 2. 

He also presented TV shows including Top of the Pops. 

His death had been registered at Westminster Register Office on 3 July by a family member. 

The Metropolitan Police previously said Wright's death at a flat in Marylebone, central London, "was unexpected, but is not being treated as suspicious". 

In May, Westminster Coroner's Court said in a statement: "An inquest will not be required for Mr Wright. 

"The coroner has now discontinued this case."
