An inquest into his death heard he died from a traumatic head injury. The inquest was opened at Norwich Coroner’s Court and adjourned until 3 May 2017.

Area coroner Yvonne Blake said: “Kuba has donated his heart to help others.”

Mr Moczyk’s twin sister Magdalena Moczyk had set up a GoFundMe page called Wake up Kuba in order to raise £20,000 for specialist treatment abroad. She managed to raise more than £4,000 before he died surrounded by family.
