An inquest into the death of Luther Hughes, the man who died at Norwich’s Castle Mall shopping centre, will not be held until later in the year.

The case was reviewed by Norfolk coroner Jacqueline Lake in Norwich today.

She said: “We are awaiting reports from the mental health trust, which are expected by April 22. I therefore propose holding another pre-inquest review on April 24 by which time we should be in a position to fix a date for the inquest.”

Mr Hughes, 39, from Music House Lane, Norwich, died from multiple injuries following a fall from an upper balcony at the shopping centre on the evening of Thursday, March 6.

His death came less than a year after Matthew Dunham, 25, died at Castle Mall after he jumped from the fifth floor of the shopping centre on May 9 last year.

Temporary hoardings have since been installed on the upper levels of the shopping centre as part of a “precautionary measure” following the two tragedies.
