An inquest date has been set for two men who died in a head-on collision on the A47.

Riki Boughen, 43, and James Cox, 46, died after their Ford Transit van was involved in a collision with a coach on the A47 in King's Lynn on January 17.

An inquest review at Norfolk Coroner's Court on January 24 heard Mr Boughen, the passenger in the van, died at the scene from a severe head injury. Mr Cox sustained multiple injuries and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn, where he later died.

The accident happened on single-carriageway stretch of the road at Constitution Hill, around a mile east of the Hardwick Roundabout.

In an inquest review this morning at King's Lynn Coroner's Court, senior coroner Jacqueline Lake said no further action was being taken by the crown prosecution service.
