An inquest is due to take place on Wednesday 20th July to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a 68 year old former civil engineer.

HM Coroner for Staffordshire, Louise McCabe will hold the inquest, listed as an hour and a quarter hearing, at the Coroner’s Court at the Town Hall in Burton Upon Trent, starting at 10.30am.
