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.
With police and the Health and Safety Executive continuing their investigations into the incident, area coroner Yvonne Blake said the case was still not ready for an inquest to resume.
A further review has now been scheduled for April 6.
