It sparked a major chemical alert and all three emergency services were in attendance for a number of hours.

No suspicious circumstances were found and Mr Williams is believed to have taken his own life.

An inquest into Mr Williams’ death was opened and adjourned at Hatfield Coroners’ Court yesterday (Thursday) but the cause of death has not yet been ascertained. The inquest will be reopened in due course.
