A second inquest into the death of a care home resident who died with a slice of carrot in his throat is set to last five days.

Peter Seaby died in 2018 at the age of 63 while he was a resident of the Oaks and Woodcroft care home in Mattishall.

An inquest was held into his death in 2021 and heard that a post-mortem examination had discovered a slice of carrot lodged in his throat.

Mr Seaby's care plan stated he should have been on a diet of soft, mashed food. 

But the inquest's jury concluded that he had died of natural causes and that the carrot had not been a factor in his death.

It prompted his siblings, Mick and Karen, to launch a judicial review against the findings, which resulted in the conclusion being quashed.

Now, the date has been set for a second inquest - which is scheduled to be held without a jury.

At a pre-inquest review hearing, senior coroner Jacqueline Lake confirmed the hearing will begin on Monday, February 20 and last for five days.
