Police officers who went to arrest a 24-year-old student found him dead in his flat.

At the opening of an inquest at Ruthin coroner John Gittins, said the officers had gone to James George Lockett’s flat in Mostyn Road, Colwyn Bay on December 6th to arrest him for alleged breach of bail conditions.

Pathologist Dr Mark Atkinson deferred a decision on the cause of death pending toxicology and other tests, and the inquest was adjourned to a date to be fixed.
