A 36-year-old woman was found dead at an assisted housing scheme, an inquest heard today.
Stacey Dye told staff at Merchant's Terrace in King's Lynn she had felt unwell for weeks.
They called an ambulance on the night of Sunday, August 11, when she complained of stomach pain. But Miss Dye refused to go to hospital after the crew had checked her over.
Support workers carried out welfare checks through the night, when Miss Dye stayed in a friend's room.
After she failed to get up the following day, they found her unresponsive on the floor. Miss Dye was pronounced dead at 12.07pm.
