An inquest into the death of a pensioner who was attacked outside his home in Suffolk has been adjourned pending further inquiries.

Richard Clarke, 73, of Cranley Green Road, Eye, was discovered with severe head injuries in the early hours of 22 August 2009 and later died.

Suffolk Police said he was assaulted after returning home from a nearby pub.

Norfolk Coroner's Court in Norwich opened the inquest but no date for its resumption has been set.

Police arrested a man soon after the pensioner's death but he was later released without charge.

No further arrests have been made.

Mr Clarke's family and Crimestoppers have offered a £10,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the attacker.
