An inquest has heard health officials are investigating the death of a retired paramedic from Rhyl, whose body was found near a hospital.

Michael Capper was found dead near Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor last January, three and a half weeks after the 56 year-old was reported missing.

The hearing in Caernarfon was told that Mr Capper had been moved from the Hergest mental health unit to another ward because specialist nurses were unable to get to work because of local flooding.

A post-mortem examination was carried out on his body – but police said his death was not suspicious and had been found near a housing development.

Deputy coroner for North West Wales, Nicola Jones, said the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board was carrying out an internal inquiry into Mr Capper’s death. She added she would summon police officers to give evidence about their search when the full inquest takes place.

The hearing, due to start on Monday 27th March, is expected to last for five days.
