An inquest has opened into the death of a 48-year-old Norfolk Blood Biker.

Clive Currington, who lived on Pleasance Close in King's Lynn, was discovered dead at home on February 14 after a friend raised the alarm.

The professional care assistant, who also volunteered for blood transporting charity SERV, was identified by his mother.

His medical cause of death has been given as opioid overdose and police investigations are still ongoing.

Prior to his funeral in March, SERV Norfolk's Ian Grimes described Mr Currington as a gentle, genuine and quiet guy who "always had your back."
