Inquest opened into St Albans man’s death

AN INQUEST into the death of a 27-year-old man has been opened and adjourned.

Christopher Williams was found dead in his home in Hatfield Road, St Albans, on Wednesday of last week with chemicals next to his body.

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.
