An inquest was opened yesterday into the death of Karl Hacker, who was found dead at sea at Walcott at the weekend.

Mr Hacker, 47, from Walcott, was discovered close to the Coast Road by a member of the public at about 10.30am on Saturday.

The inquest in Norwich heard that the single man, who lived at Walcott Caravan and Chalet Park, spent the previous evening drinking with friends.

A post mortem established the cause of death as drowning.
