A pre-inquest review was held at Norfolk Coroner’s Court in Norwich on September 17 into the death of Peter Stebbings.

Mr Stebbings, 78, from Necton, near Swaffham, died on March 7 at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital the day after he was involved in a three-vehicle crash in Little Fransham.

His cause of death was given as hypertensive heart disease and road traffic collision when the inquest was opened on March 20.

During the pre-inquest review, senior coroner Jacqueline Lake said: “He was involved in a road traffic incident. I understand that inquiries are ongoing and I have adjourn this hearing for another pre-inquest review on October 19.”

A family tribute to the retired quantity surveyor described him as a “dear friend to many, avid speedway supporter, and keen gardener”.
