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.

During the inquest opening in Norwich, held last year, Ms Thompson said: “It appears that she had fallen from the bridge and landed on the carriageway prior to being hit by a vehicle.”

Her provisional cause of death was given as traumatic injury.

Floral tributes were left in memory of Mrs McManus on the Longwater bridge after the incident.
