Date set for inquest into Blackburn man, 25, who died in Ibiza
4:51pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
THE inquest into the death of a 25-year-old Blackburn plumber who died after slipping and banging his head in Ibiza has been postponed until Thursday, October 31.
Christopher Briggs was found dead by his best friend hours in the Balearic island party resort of San Antonio.
He was on holiday with seven friends when his body was discovered in his bathroom at the Hostel Apolo.
Blackburn, Hyndburn and Ribble Valley coroner Michael Singleton said that he would have to hear the inquest at the end of the month because he had only received translations of the necessary documents from the Spanish authorities this week.
