Ms Owens, originally from South Wales, was a retired cook.

A post-mortem examination, undertaken by Dr Muhammad Aslam, provided a provisional cause of death of multi-organ failure, contributed to by bilateral femoral thrombosis (operated) due to peripheral and central vascular disease.

Investigations are ongoing into the care and treatment afforded to Ms Owens, with concerns identified in the evidence so far provided to coroner Kate Robertson.

Mrs Robertson, assistant coroner for North Wales East and Central, adjourned the inquest to a date to be fixed.
