An inquest has opened into the death of a man whose body was found in woodland the day after he went missing.

Neil Davis, 48, of Pine Court, Attleborough, died on Wednesday, February 27.

At the opening of his inquest on Wednesday, at Norfolk Coroner's Court, the medical cause of death was given as hanging.

Senior coroner Jacqueline Lake told the court that Mr Davis, who was born in Beccles and worked as a carer, died at Crowshall Lane in Attleborough.

His body was discovered in the Hargham Woods area at around 9.20am, the morning after he was reported as missing by his wife Tina Davis on Tuesday, February 26.

Mrs Davis has set up a crowdfunding page in his memory, which has raised more than £1,200 for Norwich-based homeless charity St Martins Housing Trust.
