Rolands Heinbergs was sentenced to 28 years in prison for his murder earlier this month at Norwich Crown Court, following less than an hour of jury deliberations.

The trial heard Heinbergs, originally from Latvia and a complete stranger to Mr Hastings, had been given a suspended sentence for possession of knives in Thetford weeks before the fatal attack.

Following the conviction Mr Hastings's family spoke of their anguish over the tragedy.

During a pre-inquest review at Norfolk Coroner's Court in Norwich on Tuesday, Jacqueline Lake, senior coroner for Norfolk, said the matter had been dealt with by the crown court and on that basis she did not propose to resume the inquest.
