A young woman who died in a town centre hotel room last year had smoked heroin and crack cocaine with her boyfriend, an inquest has heard. 24 year old Valentina Surdariu had just arrived back in the UK from her native Romania, where she’d had treatment for heavy addiction. One Recovery Bucks said they’d helped her with opiate addiction before she went to Romania. Her boyfriend told the inquest she’d asked him to buy drugs “for the last time”, but she died in her sleep in the hotel room in November last year. Police concluded there was nothing suspicious about her death, and the coroner ruled the cause of death was morphine toxicity.

A Wycombe food distribution company is celebrating its 75th anniversary by launching a 75,000 pound charity draw. RH Amar supply supermarkets, restaurants and independent retailers. Their customers and brand partners can nominate their favourite charities to receive up to 50,000 pounds. Managing director Rob Amar said donating to charitable causes has always been an integral part of the company and they could think of no better way to celebrate their 75th than by engaging their stakeholders. The winners will be announced on the 13th of November at 12.30.

Wycombe MP Steve Baker has joined in a row between the government and the Church of England, after the Archbishop of Canterbury attacked the Internal Market Bill in the House of Lords. Justin Welby said ministers had failed to act “justly and honestly”, to which Mr Baker said a parliamentary motion to separate the Church and state might be required, if church leaders kept sparking rows with political statements.

Wycombe Wanderers went down 1-0 away at Championship leaders Reading last night. The Chairboys had the better of the first half with six shots on goal whilst their hosts managed none. But in the second half Lucas Joao got the games only goal in the 63rd minute. After the game Gareth Ainsworth told Wycombe Sound he remained positive but admitted it’s tough when the opposition includes players so far outside his budget
