A 21-year-old man died after his van crashed into the rear of a stationary lorry on the A47, an inquest heard.

Adam Ellis struck the vehicle while it was parked in a lay-by on the southern bypass in Norwich on February 22 this year.

The medical cause of death was given as multiple injuries as a result of the collision.

Mr Ellis, of Poringland Road, Stoke Holy Cross, had been driving a white Ford Escort van at the time.

The HGV was stationary in the lay-by near Harford Bridge.

An inquest into his death opened in Norwich yesterday. It is due to resume on August 9 at Norfolk Coroners Court.
