A Coronial Inquest will be held into the death of an indigenous man at Cessnock Gaol.

Paramedics were called to the Correctional Centre at about 10 o’clock on Tuesday morning after the 37-year-old man was found unresponsive in his cell.

The cause of the man’s death has not been made public and is now the subject of an investigation by police and Corrective Services.

The man is the seventh Aboriginal person to die while in custody in the past two months.
