AN INQUEST has begun into the death of a 14-year-old boy in Gravesend in 2009.

Paramedics were called to an address in Parrock Street at around noon on November 20 where Edward Barry was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination the following day found a fatal level of methadone and traces of diazapam in the Gravesend Grammar School pupil's body.

This afternoon Coroner Roger Hatch oversaw the swearing in of a jury of six women and five men at Gravesend Town Hall.

The inquest continues.
