An inquest is due to take place today into the deaths of two men who died in a head-on collision on the A47.

Riki Boughen, 43, and James Cox, 46, died after their Ford Transit van was involved in a collision with a coach on the A47 in King's Lynn on January 17.

A previous inquest review has heard Boughen, the passenger in the van, died at the scene from a severe head injury.

Mr Cox sustained multiple injuries and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn, where he later died.

The accident happened on single-carriageway stretch of the road at Constitution Hill, around a mile east of the Hardwick Roundabout.
