AN inquest has been opened into the death of missing 28-year-old Michael Lubak, who was found hanging from a tree.

The father-of-one was reported missing from Redditch on November 13 last year after he left his home in High Trees Close in the morning but failed to arrive at work.

On January 3, police were called after his body was found by a couple out walking in woods near Pitcheroak Golf Course, off Plymouth Road.

A section of the woods was cordoned off for a time while the body was removed and a forensic examination carried out.

The inquest has been opened and adjourned awaiting reports.
