An inquest has been opened into the death of an Ashwellthorpe man who inhaled petrol fumes while working on his car.
Anthony Hipperson, 58, died at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on October 8 this year, an inquest opening at Norfolk Coroner's Court, in Norwich, heard on Wednesday morning.
Assistant coroner for Norfolk Johanna Thompson said he had been found with 'chemical burns' while working on his car at his Knyvett Green address.
The cause of death was given as inhalation of petrol fumes and petrol burns to the skin.
A full inquest was scheduled for next March.
An inquest was also opened into the death of Terry Savory, 47, of Heathgate in Norwich, who was found in his flat on August 3. He had been reported missing by neighbours and enquiries into the cause of death are ongoing.
Another was opened into the death of Nicholas Massey, 38, who collapsed at his home on Tuns Road in Necton on July 25.

Despite ambulance crews performing CPR for one hour and 20 minutes, he died at the scene. No suspicious circumstances were recorded.
A review into the inquest of James Criddle, 29, who died after an industrial incident in Besthorpe, at Baldwin Skip Hire, on May 15 this year was completed.
Mrs Thompson said the Crown Prosecution Service was still deciding on any 'future action' and a date for an inquest would be set after that decision was made.
