A 21-year-old woman died the Sunday before Christmas after having an epileptic fit in a bath.

Rosie Whitehead from Bainbridge Close in North Walsham was found dead in the bath by her brother on December 23.

The brother tried to resuscitate her but could not bring her back to life.

The inquest into her death was opened today by Norfolk coroner William Armstrong.

He also opened the inquest into the death of a 64-year-old man from Swafield.

Police visited the home of Richard Manning on Trunch Road on December 13 after he had not been seen for a few days.

The cause of death has not been established but there are no suspicious circumstances.
