Luke Ware, a plumber from Foulden near Thetford, died when the 4x4 he was driving collided with an lorry driven by Grigore Anton in Foulden Road, Didlington on October 9 last year.

Following the crash, an inquest into Mr Ware's death was opened on October 22 and adjourned to allow for criminal proceedings to take place.

Now, following the conclusion of the criminal investigation into the crash, which saw Anton found guilty of causing death by careless driving, area coroner for Norfolk Yvonne Blake has decided to close the inquest.

At a review of Mr Ware's inquest held at Norfok Coroner's Court on Monday, Ms Blake said: "I have decided not to resume the inquest into the inquest and will close the case permanently."
