A hospital porter died the day after he was found suffering from hypothermia in his flat,.

At the opening of an inquest in Ruthin John Gittins, coroner for North Wales East and Central, said that further investigations were needed into what caused 56-year-old Adrian Paul Shaw to collapse.

He was taken ill at his flat in Penrhyn Avenue, Colwyn Bay, on April 16 and neighbours were concerned about his low core temperature.

He was taken to Glan Clwyd Hospital but died the following day, and the provisional cause of death given by pathologist Dr Mared Owen-Casey was multi-organ failure due to hypothermia.

The inquest was adjourned to a date to be fixed.
