The full inquest into the death of an Essex couple who died from carbon monoxide poisoning on the Broads is to begin next month.

Carpenter Alan Frost, 64, and Tina Wilkins, 51, were discovered on a boat moored near Wroxham Island on the River Bure on June 9 last year.

The couple, from Greenwood House, Argent St, Grays, Essex, were also found with their deceased dog.

An inquest review was held in Norwich on Friday morning.

Area coroner Yvonne Blake said the full inquest was now ready to begin, and set the date for June 8.

She said all evidence will be read out.
