An inquest will today be opened into the death of a 30-year-old man who died in a crash on the A17 the day before New Year's Eve.
Steve Botten, who has been named locally for the first time since the crash, died on December 30 after his red Ford Fiesta was involved in a crash with a lorry on the A17 at Terrington St Clement.
The incident happened close to the road's junction with Market Lane, at around 7.20pm and saw Mr Botten declared dead at the scene.
The driver of the lorry suffered leg injuries as a result of the crash, which saw the main road closed to traffic for more than six hours.
