A 41-year-old web designer died from a serious head injury after a fall at a seaside town, a court has heard. 

Thomas Hanson, of Norwich, was staying at a house in Sheringham when the incident happened. 

Despite attempts to save him, he died at an address at Hillside on March 1. 

An inquest into his death was opened at Norfolk Coroner’s Court, based at County Hall, on May 7. 

The county’s senior coroner, Jacqueline Lake, confirmed that Mr Hanson had been born in January 1983 in Harrow, London. 

The medical cause of death was given as “traumatic head injuries due to, or as a result of, a fall from height.” 

His mother identified his body to a police officer at the scene. 

A full inquest to determine the official cause of death will take place later in the year at the court.
