The inquest into Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan's sudden death has been delayed until Apr 3
Westminster Coroner's Court heard that an autopsy has been conducted and the results from various tests will be made public at the inquest.
Coroner's officer Stephen Earl told the court that, "This lady was staying at a hotel in central London when on Monday, January 15 she was found unresponsive in her room. The London Ambulance Service was contacted and verified her death at the scene.
"Subsequently the Met Police attended and they determined the death to be non-suspicious."
Now her body is to be repatriated home to Limerick, although funeral plans have yet to be finalized.

It has been reported that the Limerick singer will be buried in her hometown alongside her father Terence O’Riordan, in the cemetery near Friarstown. Her father died in 2011, aged 68, after a battle with cancer.
The O’Riordan’s family priest, Father James Walton from the parish of Ballybricken, has said that the funeral is expected to take place next week at St. Ailbhe’s church. However, no date has been confirmed. The family is waiting until O’Riordan’s body is released.
Father Walton told the Limerick Leader, “Her family are still waiting for more details to come from London about her death.
"The plan is for her to be buried here at home. When that will be will depends upon when her body is released."
On Thursday O’Riordan’s mother, Eileen, thanked the singer’s fans and Limerick locals for their support since her daughter’s sudden death.
Plans have however been confirmed by Munster Rugby for a tribute to the singer at their match against the French side Castres this weekend.
I never expected to be so affected by the death of a person I never even got to meet. Dolores O'Riordan's death feels personal for me, I can't even imagine how people who knew her feel. We've truly lost a great person and artist. #thecranberries #doloresoriordan— Lydia (@Dr_RIVERS0NG) January 19, 2018
“We will be playing a number of The Cranberries' greatest hits in the pre-match build-up on Sunday, and we will also reference Dolores’ passing in our match-day program, noting the time the band performed at the Special Olympics Opening Ceremony in Thomond Park in 2010,” a spokesman told The Limerick Leader.
