The conclusion of the inquest into the death of a man killed when his fridge freezer caught fire has been delayed.

Santosh Benjamin-Muthiah, 36, died after a blaze at his home in Grant Road, Wealdstone, on November 11, in 2010.

North London Coroners Court has been hearing evidence from family members, fire investigators, trading standards and Beko, who designed the fridge freezer, for the last three weeks.

Today, Coroner Andrew Walker said he would need an extra four to six weeks to review the evidence before reaching a conclusion.
