A CORONER has opened an inquest into a 55-year-old after he was found at an address in Cressing.

Area coroner for Essex, Michelle Brown, opened proceedings last Tuesday in Chelmsford.

There, she told the court how Steven Butler had been found dead on Monday, April 8, with paramedics confirming his death at 8.26pm.

There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Mrs Brown said: “A provisional cause of death is given as hanging, awaiting toxicology.”
