A WIDNES man was found dead in his home, the court heard.

On Wednesday, an inquest into the death of Paul Gandy was formally opened.

Warrington Coroner’s Court heard how Mr Gandy was found dead at his address on Mottershead Road on May 12.

He was aged 54.

Due to the cause of Mr Gandy’s death being deemed as unnatural, senior coroner for Cheshire Jacqueline Devonish formally opened an inquest.
