Margaret Huddart, 80, of Sullart Street, Cockermouth, was discovered dead in the River Derwent, near Brigham, on February 9.

Mrs Huddart, known as Peggy, was last seen on February 5. The alarm was raised two days later after she failed to attend a doctor’s appointment.

Her body was spotted in the river by police and mountain rescue team members.

The inquest will be opened by coroner David Roberts on February 24.

He is expected to adjourn the hearing until July 8.

Mrs Huddart’s body was identified by her GP, Dr Gillian Campbell.
