Inquest opened into elderly man's fall death in Devon


An elderly man who died after apparently falling from a top-floor flat in Devon has been named by police.

The body of Maurice Hood was discovered at the roadside next to a block of flats in Gerston Road, Paignton, on 16 November.

A police investigation has found there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the 83-year-old's death.

However, an inquest was opened earlier by the South Devon coroner and adjourned to a date to be fixed.
