It has emerged that the Suffolk killer Simon Hall was found hanged in his cell at the Norfolk prison he was being held at.
In 2003, Hall was convicted of murdering pensioner Joan Albert in her home near Ipswich. For years he protested his innocence, before admitting his guilt last summer.
Today (Thursday 27 February) an inquest into his death was opened.

An inquest has opened into the death of Suffolk killer Simon Hall who was found hanging in his cell at Wayland Prison in Norfolk on Sunday.
Eleven years ago he was convicted of murdering 79-year-old Joan Albert at her home in Capel St Mary near Ipswich.
He initially protested his innocence and there was a high-profile campaign to clear his name but last year he admitted that he had killed her.
