An inquest into the deaths of Bradwell couple Graham and Jennifer Slack is due to be held in Norwich today.

The bodies of Mr and Mrs Slack, 62 and 63 respectively, were discovered in the mudbank of Breydon Water, Great Yarmouth, in September, after a birdwatcher alerted authorities.

Following a search by police and other rescue services their bodies were recovered and their deaths were not treated as suspicious.

The couple lived on Laurel Drive in Bradwell and at a pre-inquest hearing the medical cause of death for them both was given as drowning.

Mr Slack was a retired pipe fitter and Mrs Slack was a retired nurse. They both died on September 29, 2016.
