Suffolk coroner Peter Dean said the death had been confirmed at Ipswich Hospital and the body identified by Mr Coote’s brother Ian after enquiries were made to trace the family.

Ian Coote recently paid tributes to his “amazing” brother and his “pure heart” .

Dr Dean adjourned the inquest for July 16 and expressed his sympathies to the family.

“Our thoughts are very much with Mr Coote’s family at this time,” he said.
