Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan's inquest to resume

The circumstances of the death of The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan are to be investigated at her inquest.

The Irish songwriter was found dead in a hotel room in London's Park Lane at the age of 46.

How she died will be investigated during the hearing at Westminster Coroner's Court on Thursday.

Before the inquest was adjourned in January, the court was told "various tests" were being awaited after a post-mortem examination, but that police found her death not to be suspicious.

The mother of three, from Kilmallock, Co Limerick, was pronounced dead on January 15 at the Hilton hotel, where she was staying while recording.

Her bandmates said they were "devastated" by the news, adding "the world has lost a true artist".
