Aslacton man died in tragic accident, inquest told

A man who was found hanging at his home in The Street, Aslacton, near Long Stratton, died in a tragic accident, an inquest heard today.

David Howard, 63, was found by his son-in-law Nicholas Worrall on December 12 last year.

Mr Worrall told the Norwich inquest that he went to see his father-in-law but got no reply at the door. He forced entry to the house and found Mr Howard hanging.

A post mortem examination was carried out and the cause of death was given as hanging.

Mr Worrall told the inquest that Mr Howard, who was a billiards table fitter, had never indicated to the family that he had wanted to commit suicide.
