An inquest date has been set into the death of a 61-year-old man killed in a house fire at Peckforton, near Nantwich.

Retired farm worker John Ernest Ryder died after he was found in his burning home on Stone House Lane.

Fire crews from Nantwich, Tarporley and Malpas were called to the blaze in April this year.

The married victim was declared dead at the scene despite attempts by paramedics to revive him.

Parts of the first floor in the house collapsed because of the severity of the blaze on April 4.

An inquest into the death is set to take place before assistant deputy coroner for Cheshire Joan Harkin at 1pm on Thursday December 15, at Crewe Municipal Building.
