The family of Sutton woman Melanie Wilson have hit out against coroners who 'forgot' to inform them her inquest opening was rescheduled.

Melanie's inquest opening was set for March 7, but brought forward to February 27, after the family have waited four months for answers as to their daughter's death.

Her father, David Wilson, said it was 'horrible' when he found out the news of the opening through social media.

He said: "It was horrible, I had no knowledge at all it was brought forward.

"It hasn't been since. When this sort of thing that's on your mind you do want answers. It's taken a long time. It would have been courteous to be told."
