THE inquest into the death of former Welsh Government minister Carl Sargeant will resume on Monday July 8, it has been announced.

The inquest was held in November last year, but was adjourned so former first minister Carwyn Jones could be recalled to give further evidence.

Mr Sargeant was found dead at his home in north Wales in November 2017, just days after he lost his job in a cabinet reshuffle.

It will last for five days and will be heard by senior coroner for north Wales John Gittins at County Hall in Ruthin.

Neil Hudgell of Hudgell Solicitors, representing the Sargeant family, said: “We’re grateful to the coroner for his careful consideration of all matters to date. Even though the inquest is some time away, it is very important for the Sargeant family to have a date set.

"They continue to hope that the inquest will allow them some much needed answers about the circumstances surrounding Carl’s untimely and tragic death.”
