An assistant at a production company was found dead in her bath two days before Christmas, an inquest heard.

Kathryn Mather, nee Shipway, 41, who was divorced, was found dead in her bath, partially covered with water, on December 23.

Her cause of death is thought to be alcohol toxicity.

An inquest into her death was opened at Oxfordshire Coroners Court on Wednesday and adjourned for a witness testimony and pathology reports to be gathered.
