A motorcyclist who was described as a good man and father died in a crash, an inquest has heard.

Lukasz Parszcz, who lived in Norwich, died on Sunday April 21, after the moped he was riding was involved in a collision with two cars on the A1067 near the junction with the B1145 at Bawdeswell.

At an inquest into his death, held at Norfolk Coroner's Court on Thursday, the court heard how on the morning of April 21, Mr Parszcz's Honda moped collided with the rear of a Nissan Note which was preparing to turn onto the B1145, causing him to come off his bike and into the path of oncoming traffic.

The 36-year was pronounced dead at the scene.

The court heard evidence from the driver of the Nissan Note, the driver the Kia Sportage whose path Mr Parszcz fell into and other motorists who witnessed the collision.
