The inquest into the death of a bar tender who went missing on the Isles of Scilly has been adjourned in the light of new evidence.
23-year-old Josh Clayton from Taunton had been working on Tresco in September 2015 when he disappeared after a party. Yesterday, the court in Plymouth heard evidence that Josh had been involved in an altercation outside the event.
His body was later recovered from the sea but the jury was told it wasn't possible to determine how he died.
The Inquest into the death of Joshua Clayton has been adjourned and suspended following new evidence which only emerged during evidence on Tuesday 10th January 2017. This is the first time that Devon and Cornwall Police have been made aware of this new evidence and further investigations will be carried out as a result.
