Brenda Leyland's body was discovered at the Leicester Marriott Hotel on October 4

An inquest into the death of a woman who is believed to have sent abusive tweets about the parents of missing youngster Madeleine McCann has been opened at Leicester Coroner’s Court.


Brenda Katheryn Gabrielle Leyland, 63, of Burton Overy, was found dead in a hotel room in Enderby, on Saturday, October 4.


She was named on national television as an internet 'troll' two days earlier, accused of targeting Kate and Gerry McCann with vile messages on Twitter.


Following a confrontation at her home on Thursday by a Sky News reporter, Ms Leyland left her home and rented a room at the Leicester Marriott Hotel, where she was found dead a short time later.


It is not yet known who discovered her body.


Sergeant Kevin Taylor, of Braunstone police station, was the first officer at the scene and found Ms Leyland's body in the room.


Giving evidence at the inquest today, he said that her body had been taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary on Sunday and formally identified by family member Michael Leyland.


Sgt Taylor confirmed that a postmortem examination had taken place yesterday, but no cause of death had been determined and the results were not yet complete.


He also said that police inquires had not yet been concluded.


Coroner Catherine Mason asked if foul play had been involved, to which Sgt Taylor replied: “There did not appear to be. No.”


The inquest has been adjourned until December 18.
