AN inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of Simon Dedrick.

The 29-year-old of Cotlandswick, London Colney, was found dead at another address in the same road on Thursday afternoon.

A post-mortem revealed he died from respiratory failure caused by alcohol abuse which had led to aspiration of gastric contents - but this is subject to confirmation at the inquest which was opened and adjourned yesterday (Monday).

Mr Dedrick's funeral will be taking place on Monday, December 7, at St Bartholomews Church at 12.30pm, followed by an internment at Hatfield Road Cemetery at 2pm.
