An inquest date has been set into the death of 22-year-old Mason Seymour, whose body was found in woodland near Claydon in November last year. 

Suffolk Coroner's Court heard today that police were called by a member of the public on November 12, 2021, regarding a body in the wood in the vicinity of Claydon. 

The body was later confirmed to be that of Mason Seymour, who had been reported missing in August. 

After his disappearance, a number of specialist searches were carried out in and around the Shotley area, where Mr Seymour, of no fixed abode, was last seen at the end of July 2021.

Senior coroner Nigel Parsley set the inquest for July 14 2022, following an internal case review in May.
