Russell Lambert was left severely brain damaged, paralysed and blind after the attack at his brother's house in Albion Road on February 1, 2014.

He was admitted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow on January 2, 2017, where he died three days later, aged 58.

He and his brother Patrick were assaulted by Clive Malone, who was jailed for life in October 2014 after being found guilty of attempted murder following a trial at Norwich Crown Court.

A previous pre-inquest review into Mr Lambert's death heard he had been attacked with a dumbbell weights bar.
