A young man who died after he was found seriously ill in an open space near Shotley Gate has been named in an inquest as 19-year-old Cameron Ray.

An inquest looking into the circumstances surrounding Mr Ray’s death was opened and adjourned yesterday at Ipswich Coroner’s Court.

Suffolk coroner Dr Peter Dean told the hearing that Mr Ray, from Lower Harlings, was found by a member of the public on the morning of Saturday, August 5.

He said a post-mortem examination had revealed the cause of death was hanging.

On the morning of Mr Ray’s death, witnesses reported seeing three police cars, an ambulance and a rapid response paramedic rushing to the scene along Kitchener Way. Despite their best efforts they were unable to revive him.

Dr Dean adjourned the inquest until December.

“Out thoughts are with his family in these very sad circumstances,” he said.
