The inquest into the death of an Attleborough pensioner has been adjourned again following a review.

Dudley Howe, 82, was hit by a lorry in Station Road, Attleborough, around midday on Friday, October 6, 2017.

An inquest into his death was opened at Norfolk Coroner’s Court on October 16, 2017, but was adjourned again on Friday.

Senior coroner Jacqueline Lake confirmed investigations into Mr Howe’s death were ongoing and ordered a further pre-inquest review to take place on February 6, 2019.

At the time of his death, Mr Howe had eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Mr Howe was born in Threxton in 1935, and moved to Thompson, near Watton, at a young age.

Mr Howe was a breeder of Ayrshire dairy cows who had enjoyed showing cattle at the Royal Norfolk, Aylsham and Wayland shows and was a member of the Ayrshire Cattle Society for many years.
