A 23-year-old man died after being found at his Norwich home, an inquest has heard.

Callum Speck, of Scarlet Road, Norwich, died on Sunday, May 19, at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

At an inquest opening on Wednesday at Norfolk Coroner's Court, the cause of death was recorded as multiple organ failure and hypoxic brain injury due to hanging.

Senior coroner for Norfolk Jacqueline Lake said Mr Speck was found hanging at his home address.

Ms Lake adjourned the inquest until August 15.
