AN investigation into the death of Darren MacCormick, who was killed in Didcot this month, will be opened at Oxford Coroners Court today.

Mr MacCormick, who was known as Dizzy by his friends, died in the early hours of January 9.

His family left heartfelt tributes for the 'caring' 'life of the party'.

He was named as the victim of a brawl at a house in Mendip Heights – in which three people were stabbed. The other two men were left with serious injuries.

The inquest will be opened today and a full inquest will be scheduled for a later date. Inquests aim to answer who died, when and where, the cause and how it happened.
