An inquest has opened into the death of a well-known community figure who was struck by a Tesco lorry.
Stephen Lamprell died following the collision on the A1122 between Bexwell and Crimplesham on June 26 this year.
The 64-year-old of Market Lane, Crimplesham, near Downham Market, suffered a severe head injury.
An inquest opening held in Norwich on Tuesday heard how the heavy goods vehicle 'collided' with Mr Lamprell in the road.
His medical cause of death was given as a severe head injury due to a road traffic collision.
Neighbours described Mr Lamprell as someone who regularly went out on long walks and was recognisable by his white walking stick.
Paying tribute last month, neighbour Ray Manning, said: 'He was more of a friend than a neighbour, we were shocked when we found out what happened. He was a lovely old boy, you couldn't hate him.'
