An inquest has opened into the death of a cyclist who was involved in a crash on Aylsham Road.

Ian Mooney, of Coldershaw Road, Norwich, died at Addenbooke’s Hospital in Cambridge on April 5 - two days after the incident.

Opening the inquest in Norwich on Monday, senior coroner Jacqueline Lake said the 31-year-old had worked as a cleaner.

She said: “On April 3, Mr Mooney was cycling along Aylsham Road [in Norwich] when he was involved in a collision.

“He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital where he died.”

The medical cause of death was given as traumatic and hypoxic-ischemic brain injury as a result of a road traffic accident.

Police arrested a man in his 30s on suspicion of drink driving, drug driving and dangerous driving following the crash.

He was released under investigation.

The inquest was adjourned for a review on July 13.
