Investigations are continuing into the death of a 28-year-old woman in a three-vehicle road crash nearly a year ago.

Louisa Vardy, who was driving a Ford Focus, was pronounced dead at the scene, on October 24 last year.

A pre-inquest review was held at Norfolk coroner's court in Norwich on Friday, October 18.

Senior coroner Jacqueline Lake said: "The inquest was opened on November 26, 2018. The matter is not ready to go to a full inquest."

She adjourned it for another pre-inquest review at the coroner's court on January 18 next year.
