An inquest into the death of ice hockey player Adam Johnson, whose neck was cut during a match, has been suspended as police inquiries continue.

The Nottingham Panthers player was hit in the neck by a skate during a match against the Sheffield Steelers on 28 October.

The 29-year-old was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A man was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter in November and has since been released on bail.

Sheffield's senior coroner Tanyka Rawden first opened an inquest into Mr Johnson's death last year.

Following a review of the case, her office said on Friday that the suspension would last until July, unless South Yorkshire Police determined no-one would be charged with a homicide offence in relation to the death.
