The former Children's and Communities Secretary, Carl Sargeant, was found dead at his Connah's Quay home in November 2017, four days after after being sacked from his role in the Welsh Government. He was facing allegations of inappropriate behaviour, which he denied.

The inquest is listed for five days and will begin on Monday 8 July 2019.
