An inquest into the death of two men who died at a Norfolk chicken factory has been adjourned for the fourth time.

Pest control subcontractors Jonathan Collins, 34, from Watton, and Neil Moon, 49, from Spalding in Lincolnshire, were found dead at Banham Poultry in Attleborough in the early hours of October 4, 2018.

The inquest into their deaths was initially opened days later on October 11, with further reviews held last year in April, July and October.

A further review has now been scheduled for April 6.

Emergency services were called to the factory on Station Road at about 1.10am.

Both men were fathers, with extensive tributes paid in the wake of their deaths.
