An inquest into the death of a shop assistant who fell from a bridge onto the A47 will take place this summer.

Elizabeth McManus, 45, of Foundry Close, Foulsham, near Dereham, died on October 13 last year at the Longwater flyover in Costessey.

A pre-inquest review was held today at Carrow House in Norwich by assistant coroner Johanna Thompson.

She said: 'It seems files from the police are not yet ready but the investigation is almost complete.'

A full inquest is due to be held on June 1 at Carrow House.
