As reported, police launched an investigation in October last year following the death of Michael Campion, 49, who had been receiving treatment at the hospital.

At today’s review, Norfolk coroner Jacqueline Lake said: “I’m awaiting a police report and I understand that the CPS is still investigating this matter, and that an independent doctor’s report is being considered in light of that.”

She adjourned the matter to March 12 by which time she hoped the police report would be available, and they could move to fixing a date for the inquest.

Mr Campion, from the East Rudham area, was found unconscious in his room at Hellesdon Hospital at 3.10am on Tuesday, October 1.

He died at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on Friday, October 4.

Three people have been interviewed, under caution, about Mr Campion’s death.
