A jury inquest will be held into the death of a prisoner who was found hanged in his cell at HMP Haverigg.

Keith Abbott, 32, also had other injuries, a pre-inquest review in Cockermouth heard.

Mr Abbott, 32, of Newton-le-Willows, Liverpool, was found dead on July 15, 2016.

He was jailed in 2015 for four years after admitting attempted robbery and possession of an offensive weapon, the Liverpool Echo reported.

He had a history of mental health problems.

About 40 witnesses will give evidence at the inquest, expected to take place at Carlisle Crown Court later in the year.

It is expected to last two weeks but could go on longer. There will be 11 people on the jury.

Cumbria's senior coroner David Roberts, at the Coroners Court, Cockermouth, held a pre-inquest review on Wednesday.

Taking part were representatives of: Mr Abbott's partner, Linda Bailey; Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust; the Cumbria Partnership Foundation Trust; Cumbria Constabulary and the prison service.
