    An inquest into the death of an elderly man at a care home has heard a delay in getting him treated may have contributed to his death.

    Retired detective Richard Bass, who was in his 90s and suffered from diabetes, died in hospital from complications probably caused by a delay in obtaining appropriate care at Brundall Care Home, the coroner ruled.

    The home has since been rated inadequate by government inspectors.

    Sheringham trader Andy Bullen says more than 35% of the town's population is over the age of 65, and "elderly people coming in cars want to park outside where they want to shop."
