AN INQUEST into the death of a 24-year-old woman has been opened and adjourned.

Brighton University student Helen Sthamer was found dead at her home in Waterloo Street, Hove, on April 25 by her landlord.

Coroner Veronica Hamilton-Deeley said the provisional cause of death was unascertained as she is waiting for a toxicology report.

The coroner requested a full medical history for Ms Sthamer, and said Brighton and Hove Wellbeing Service, who were involved in her care, would give evidence following an investigation.

The inquest has been adjourned until February 20.
