An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of a mother-of-three who died after a crash on the A47 at Scarning, near Dereham.

Kim Utting, 52, was killed on Valentine's Day morning as she and her daughter, Emma Herring, were travelling towards Norwich, and their car was involved in a collision with another vehicle.

Mrs Utting, of Litcham, who was the front seat passenger, died at the scene, and her 30-year-old daughter was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where she was treated for her injuries and later discharged.

Yesterday's Norwich inquest heard that the cause of death was injuries sustained due to a road traffic collision.

The crash is being investigated by police, and Norfolk coroner William Armstrong adjourned the inquest to a date to be fixed.

As reported, Mrs Utting's family paid tribute to her as someone who always had a smile on her face.

She was a prominent figure on the dog show scene, with dogs described by her family as her 'passion' and she won a major prize at Crufts in 2008 with her mastiffs.

Police also want to hear from the driver of the white lorry, which appeared to have something fluorescent on one of its wing mirrors and also failed to stop.
