An inquest into the death of a woman who was found dead in a National Trust car park has been opened. 

At Oxford Coroners Court on Tuesday, the head coroner for the county Darren Salter said he was opening the 'sad case' of Carole Elizabeth Wright, a 62-year-old retired woman who lived in Uxbridge. 

He said she was married to Miles Wright, a South African financial adviser.

No date has been set for the inquest yet because it is a criminal case but a pre-inquest review is expected to be held in a few months.

Ms Wright's body was found in the National Trust woodland at around 5.53pm on Friday, October 23. 

On Thursday last week Daniel O'Hara-Wright, of Regent Avenue, Hillingdon, was charged with her murder. 

At the time police said that a 23-year-old had been in hospital in a 'serious but stable' condition.
