A FARMER in Denbigh was found dead at his home last week, an inquest opening heard.

Bryn Williams, of Plas Uchaf, Llannefydd, died aged 74 on Sunday, September 10.

He was pronounced dead at his home address by a paramedic at 6.25pm.

At the opening of the inquest into his death, held in Ruthin today (September 18), it was heard that Mr Williams had struggled with his health for some time.

In the weeks leading up to his death, he had become “increasingly weak and tired”, and was regularly helped at home by relatives and carers.

On that date of his death, Mr Williams had spoken to his sister and made no complaints about his condition.

But later that day, his nephew found him dead in his room as he went to bring a meal in for him.

A post-mortem examination was carried out by Dr Muhammad Aslam, who provided a provisional cause of death as asphyxia.

John Gittins, senior coroner for North Wales East and Central, adjourned the inquest to a date to be fixed.
