An inquest into the death of a teenager who died at Norwich train station last year has resumed.

On February 26, 2020,  emergency services were called to the station following an incident that happened shortly after 1.45am.

It was later confirmed that 17-year-old Maksymilian Malecki, from London, had died at the scene.

The hearing, which was held on June 9, 2020, was adjourned before resuming on Monday, October 25 and is due to last a week.

It heard how Mr Malecki lived with a number of complex mental health needs, including autism, anxiety and an emotionally unstable personality condition.

Following Mr Malecki’s death, the station was completely closed for part of the morning with three of the platforms - and the trains at them - cordoned off while emergency services attended.

The inquest continues.
