Details of how a man whose body was found in a Hampshire field died will be revealed in June.

A date has been set for the inquest into the death of Steven Lockyer.

The 59-year-old Romsey resident had been missing from his home in Tavistock Close and was last seen on Saturday, April 23 last year.

He has not been in contact with friends and family since that day, which is said to be very out of character for him.

His body was discovered in a field, close to Magnolia Walk, in Abbotswood, on the outskirts of Romsey.

An inquest into his death will be held by senior Hampshire coroner Grahame Short in Wichester on June 19.
