Coroners report in the newspaper

I'm trying to get hold of the coroners report for my mothers death. Her name was Eileen Wilkes (nee Vaughan) and she died 31st Dec 1977. I have her death certificate which states an inquest was held on 8th Feburary 1978. I've been in touch with the coroner for the Barking / Dagenham district who have said that the reports are distroyed after 15 years so no joy there.

I have heard that often most of the detail from the reports are printed in the local newspapers but not being from that area I have no idea what the local papers where and a google now shows that there are a lot currently.

Any idea how to progress this search?

Regards
Jen
