Six-month-old West Norfolk baby's death 'sudden and unexplained', inquest hears

A six-month-old boy's death in Gayton was sudden and unexplained, an inquest has heard.

Lynn's coroner's court was told this afternoon that Jasper Cragg died in his cot on February 24.

The inquest heard that Jasper, who had seemed well in the 24 hours before his death, besides the "remnants" of chicken pox, "did not look right" when his parents checked on him.

They then took him outside to call for help and CPR was started but he was later declared dead.

A police statement confirmed there was no need for an investigation.

Coroner Yvonne Blake recorded an open conclusion. She said: "We don't know what happened to Jasper. No one can find a medical cause of death."

Ms Blake said it was a case of sudden, unexplained death in childhood.
