An 18-year-old man who had a history of mental health problems took his own life, an inquest has heard.
Callum Wilson was found in a flat on Howlett Close in North Walsham on December 16 last year.
An inquest into his death, at Norfolk Coroners Court on Monday (July 25), heard that he had a history of mental health problems.
In a statement read at the hearing, the deceased man's father David Wilson described his son as fun-loving.
"He loved a party and having a good time," he said.
"He really loved hockey, he was a goalkeeper, and was really good at it."
Callum studied plumbing at Norwich City College where he got a level 2 qualification, but his studies were interrupted by the pandemic.
