A FULL inquest into the death of a woman who was found hanging at a mental health facility will be held in December.

Ms Bell, of Swan Lodge in High Street East, Sunderland, died at the Royal on August 14.

An inquest was opened at Sunderland Coroner’s Court yesterday and adjourned until a full hearing on December 1.
