An inquest into the death of promising young cricketer Tom Maynard is due to be heard in London today. The 23 year old died on June 18th last year after going onto the tracks at Wimbledon underground station. Earlier he'd been stopped by police after being seen driving "erratically" nearby.

Maynard began his county cricket career with Glamorgan before moving to Surrey in 2011. His Father, Matt, had previously coached and captained the Welsh county. Last August, friends and family of Tom rode over 100 miles from Cardiff to the Kia Oval to raise funds for the Tom Maynard Trust.
