An inquest is set to be held into the death of an Essex father, who died while on holiday at Pontins in Pakefield in 2017.

Suffolk's area coroner Jacqueline Devonish will resume the inquest into the death of 38-year-old Paul Gladwell on Monday, April 19 at Suffolk Coroner's Court in Ipswich.

After becoming unwell, Mr Gladwell, who was also known as Paul Reynolds, was taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston.
