The inquest into the death of a motorcyclist who was killed in a crash with a van has been adjourned until next year.

Jamie Carter was 44 when the motorcycle he was riding was involved in a crash with a van at the Felthorpe junction between Reepham Road and Fir Covert Road. 

Mr Carter, who lived at Crossing Road in Palgrave, worked as a chef, an inquest opening heard last year.

He died on Wednesday, June 26, 2019.

On Friday, a review at Norfolk Coroner's Court heard how investigations into his death were still ongoing and as a result, the case was not ready for a full inquest.

Senior coroner Jacqueline Lake scheduled a further review hearing to be held on March 18, 2021.
