An inquest has been opened into the death of a man found at his home in Dereham.

Aynsley Watson, 36, was found at his home on Howard Crescent by his mum and her daughter on August 22 this year.

An inquest opening held in Norwich on Tuesday (October 31) heard Mr Watson had been at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital but was discharged on August 18.

He was last spoken to by his mother at 5pm on August 22 but she said he sounded confused and drowsy.

She attempted to phone him again but got no answer so went to his address with her daughter where she found him.

His mother attempted CPR and the emergency services attended but nothing could be done.

The cause of death has been given as bilateral bronchopneumonia and combined drug intoxication.

Area coroner Yvonne Blake adjourned the inquest for a full hearing to be held in Norwich on March 28 next year.
