Dawn Waterman, 75, died in a collision with another car on the A143 near Brockdish on Sunday, October 20.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

An inquest opening on Friday, November 1 heard Ms Waterman was a retired factory worker and lived in Jack Evans Court in South Ockendon, Essex.

She was identified by her daughter in law Jean Waterman and her cause of death was given as multiple injuries as a consequence of a road traffic collision.

Yvonne Blake, area coroner for Norfolk, said: "Clearly enquiries about the accident will have to be made and we will have to await the report."

Ms Blake adjourned the inquest for a review on February 3, 2020.

Seven other people were injured in the fatal crash, which involved a white Vauxhall Corsa and a blue Ford C-Max and saw the A143 closed for five hours between Brockdish and Thorpe Abbots.

Norfolk Constabulary is asking anybody with information regarding the incident to contact PC Craig Knowles on 101, quoting reference number NC-20102019-270.
