October date for hospital fall inquest

AN inquest into the death of a man who fell from a hospital window in Belfast will start in October.

It will take three weeks and 38 witnesses are expected to attend or make statements, a preliminary hearing in the city was told yesterday.

An independent psychiatric report is being finalised after Christopher Boyle (44) plunged from the Mater Hospital just before Christmas in 2008.

He suffered fatal brain and lung injuries.
