An inquest has been opened into the death of a man found unresponsive at a Shrewsbury homeless charity.

A hearing at Shirehall was told medics found Mr Pritchard had suffered a hypoxic brain injury after a cardiac arrest, and he was transferred to Royal Stoke University Hospital. His condition deteriorated and he died on September 6.

Mr Pritchard's body was identified via routine hospital identification.

John Ellery, senior coroner for Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, adjourned Mr Pritchard's inquest to December 20.
