The inquest into the death of Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan has been adjourned while the coroner awaits the results of “various tests”.

The inquest, at Westminster Coroner’s Court, has been adjourned until 3 April.

The singer died suddenly on 16 January aged 46.

The Irish musician, originally from Limerick, led the band to international success in the 90s with singles including Linger and Zombie.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said the police were called to a hotel in Park Lane at 09:05 GMT on Monday, where “a woman in her mid-40s” was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police confirmed earlier this week that the death was not being treated as suspicious.

The parish priest from her home town Friarstown, in Limerick, said her funeral would take place in Ireland.

“The plan is for her to be buried here at home. When that will be will depend on when her body is released,” he said.

The Cranberries shot to international fame with their 1993 debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? and went on to sell over 40 million records worldwide.
