The inquest into the death of Teeside University student Matthew Jordan in Windermere continues.

The criminology student had been visiting Bowness-on-Windermere with three friends when he became separated from them on a night out.

It sparked Cumbria's largest search for many years, with hundreds of local people helping police search the surrounding area but ultimately police honed their search on the bed of the lake, where his body was found.

The inquest into his death has been adjourned after the family's lawyer argued there were too many unanswered questions relating to how Matthew ended up in the lake. They will be hoping for some of those answers today.
