AN inquest into the death of a Huddersfield policeman killed diving in Wales has been opened and adjourned.
Road traffic officer Pc Paul Imeson, 41, was killed while diving with two friends off the Welsh cost on Saturday afternoon.
The North Wales coroner will now fix a date for a full inquest.
Pc Imeson got into difficulties around 1pm near Porth Diana, Trearddur Bay, Anglesey.
He was airlifted from the coast but pronounced dead at Bangor hospital.
A post mortem was conducted yesterday morning.
North Wales police are still investigating the incident.
Pc Imeson was diving with a private group when the accident happened and not as part of the West Yorkshire Police sub-aqua club.
He was among a group of eight divers from Kirklees and Wakefield.
Colleagues have already paid tribute to Pc Imeson for his dedication to duty and his professionalism as a road traffic officer.
Acting Supt Martin Sykes, of Huddersfield Police said yesterday that Pc Imeson's death had come as a tremendous shock.
"He was well known in the service and the community, and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts at this time are with his wife and family," he said.
