AN INQUEST has opened into the death of a 21-year-old Wrexham man found dead.

Declan Cameron Patterson-Jones, of Bersham Road in Wrexham, was found dead at home on June 26.

At a brief hearing in Ruthin on Monday, John Gittins, senior coroner for North Wales East and Central, said that a pathologist's provisional cause of Mr Patterson-Jones' death is hanging.

The matter will now move to a full inquest at a date to be fixed.
