The circumstances surrounding the 65-year-old's death are not thought to be suspicious.

Mr Rooney was an outdoor pursuits enthusiast who often travelled to Scotland and closer to home was a keen outdoor swimmer.

At the time of his death, friend Tracy Clark, a member of Sea Palling Seals an open water swimming group of which Mr Rooney was a member, said: "To say Terry will be missed is an understatement. No words can describe how much he meant to us all."

This morning, Tuesday, February 18, an inquest into his death will be opened at Norfolk Coroner's Court.
