The inquest into the death of a Norfolk teenager is set to begin after multiple set backs.

Tyla Katherine Joan Cook died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn on November 15, 2017.

A pre-inquest review hearing was held in December, but the teenagers medical cause of death was not given.

As well as Tyla's family, the coroner is expected to hear from the East of England Ambulance Trust, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Norfolk County Council and the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Trust.

Senior coroner for Norfolk Jacqueline Lake apologised to the family that the inquest had to “keep being put back”.
