A child who died in a skiing accident in France fell from a height sufficient to account for his death, an inquest in Newport has heard.

Carwyn Scott-Howell, seven, from Talybont-on-Usk, Powys, died while on a family holiday in the French Alps earlier this month.

The inquest heard his body was found on a ledge in the resort of Flaine after being separated from his family.

Gwent deputy coroner Wendy James adjourned the inquest until 22 June.
