Daniel Aldridge's vehicle came off the road in Great Ryburgh, near Fakenham, on a hill close to the junction of Bridge Road and the main A1067 Fakenham to Norwich Road, last week.

The inquest into the death of the 38-year-old, who lived in Station Road in Great Ryburgh, was opened at Norfolk Coroner's Court this morning.

Speaking at the hearing, coroner Jacqueline Lake said: 'On the morning of March 22, Mr Aldridge was driving his Vauxhall Corsa car along Bridge Road in Great Ryburgh where his vehicle left the carriageway and collided with a tree.

'Emergency services attended, but sadly Mr Aldridge was declared dead at the scene.'

She said that a post mortem examination found he died from injuries caused by the crash.

The inquest was adjourned to September 15, 2016.
