An inquest has head that an Irish kayaker, whose body washed up on the Isla of Wight, had suffered neck and wrist injuries.

The discovery of Morgan Savage’s body prompted a month-long quest to identify him.

The inquest, which opened into his death, heard that the 40-year-old doctor had suffered injuries to his left wrist and fatally, to the right side of his neck, which may have been caused by a knife.

Mr Savage’s body was discovered strapped to a kayak which washed ashore at Yaverland Beach, near Sandown, England, on the 11th of September.

A police spokesperson said the death is still being treated as unexplained – however officers were still awaiting the results of further tests.
