Inquest opens after actor found dead at Stanhoe home

An inquest has been opened after an actor from London died while staying at his second home in Norfolk.

Jeffrey Perry, 63, was found dead at Bircham Road, Stanhoe on Saturday.

Mr Perry, whose main home is in London, was staying at his second home with his wife Patience.

At an inquest in Norwich yesterday, Norfolk coroner William Armstrong said Mrs Perry had found her husband lifeless in bed.

A post mortem examination at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn failed to establish a cause of death. The inquest was adjourned.

Mr Perry appeared in the 1980s BBC television series The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Other credits included The Tripods, The Bill and theatre work.
