A coroner has recorded an open verdict after an inquest into the death of 22-month-old toddler Tayler Mason, from Banbury, at Oxford Coroner’s Court today (Tuesday)

Coroner Darren Salter pronounced the verdict after a day-long inquest in which Tayler’s mother Karla Mason broke down several times while giving evidence.

The court heard how the toddler was admitted to the Horton General Hospital on November 5 2010 with bruising to his face and head after Mrs Mason and her husband Craig Mason found him fitting in his cot.
