AN inquest has been opened into the death of a woman who used to live on the streets.

Paige Greenaway was found hanging at her home in Richmond Terrace, Brighton, on February 9. Her death was confirmed at 7.55pm.

Police had forced an entry to the 23-year-old’s flat after friends who had not been able to contact her became worried about her welfare.

Paige previously lived in a tent in a city graveyard and featured in a 2017 BBC documentary about homelessness.

At Brighton Coroner’s Court on Friday, Senior Coroner Veronica Hamilton-Deeley adjourned the full inquest until June 15.
