A coroner has named a rough sleeper who may have had property stolen before he died in Birmingham city centre.

Chiriac Inout was found in John Bright Street at about 23:30 GMT on 29 November, one of the coldest nights of the year.

Police are investigating after CCTV appeared to show someone searching his pockets while he laid in a loading area behind The Victoria pub.

An inquest date is yet to be fixed, the coroner's office confirmed.
