An inquest has opened into the death of a man who was found hanged in a wooded area of Norwich on Boxing Day.

Arnas Lescius, 31, was found in an area behind St Mildreds Road, Earlham, by police.

The factory worker was discovered by officer Gordon Brown about a 20-minute walk from Mr Lescius’ home, in Stylman Road in Clover Hill.

The inquest hearing at Norfolk Coroner’s Court this morning heard how Mr Lescius had moved to Norwich from Lithuania.

Norfolk Senior Coroner Jacqueline Lake adjourned the inquest until June 19.
