Unemployed Norwich man Michael Currer killed with 'blunt force' assault to head and chest, inquest hears

Examinations have found Michael Currer - killed at his home in Saffron Square last November - suffered 'blunt force' injuries to his head and chest.

Mr Currer, 59, known as Mick to his family and friends, was found dead at his home in Catton Grove at 7am on November 12.

The matter was referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), after it emerged Mr Currer had been in contact with police just days before his death.

The opening of the inquest into his death at Norfolk Coroner's Court today heard Mr Currer was unemployed, and had died as a result of 'injuries consistent with an assault'.
