The funeral of a man who died after suspected drug use in a public toilet has been held.

Aaron King, of Fairground Way in Clifton, collapsed at the public toilets in Northbridge Road, Shefford, on the evening of April 7.

The 25-year-old was taken by ambulance to Lister Hospital in Stevenage, where he died three days later. His funeral was held last week.

An inquest into Mr King’s death was opened and adjourned on April 11. A full inquest is to be held at a later date, but the provisional cause of death has been listed as intravenous drug use, which led to a cardiac arrest and a hypoxic brain injury.
