A date has been set for an inquest into the death of a 17-year-old who was found unconscious in Wymondham.

She was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital but died later the same day.

At a pre-inquest review into her death held at Norfolk Coroner's Court on Monday March 2, Yvonne Blake, area coroner for Norfolk, told the court the case, which had previously been adjourned while investigations were ongoing, was ready for a full inquest.
She said Miss Payne's death was drug related.
In December, six men appeared in Norwich Crown Court charged with drugs offences relating to the supply of MDMA around the time of Miss Payne's death.
The inquest has been adjourned until April 4, 2020.
