THE body of a man found in Furzton Lake has been named as Brian Balster.

An inquest, which opened this morning, told how the 34-year-old was found by a member of the public at 2pm on October 25 and emergency services were called to recover the body from the north west end of the lake.

Mr Balster was identified by his fingerprints and the coroner said it had been hard to track his last movements as the last person to speak to him did so two weeks before he was found.

The full inquest will take place on February 1 next year.
