The inquest was opened on Thursday (November 30) by Coroner Elizabeth Gray at Lawrence Court in Huntingdon and swiftly adjourned to a date to be decided in due course.

A post-mortem has found that the death was due to the actions of a third party but that the cause of death awaits further testing.

Paul’s son Nathan Naylor paid tribute to him by saying: “My dad was my hero. He spent 22 years and one day in the Royal Navy and fought in the first Gulf War.

"He was a loving father, son and brother. Such a pure soul and loved by many. Fair winds and calm seas.”
