THE inquest into a Swindon pensioner who died after falling 30ft from a car park has yet to take place, the Swindon Coroner’s office said yesterday.

David Hackman, 75, of Hythe Road, Old Town, fell to his death on June 25 last year, but the hearing has been postponed awaiting ‘further inquiries’.

The Adver told yesterday how Mr Hackman had written his will just four days before his death, leaving £81,000 to his cousin – and requesting two hymns for his funeral.

Police have said no-one else was involved in his death.
