An inquest has opened into the death of an army veteran who was killed in a car crash on New Year's Eve.
Anthony Robert Glover died at the age of 31 at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on New Year's Day following the collision on the A140 at Long Stratton.
His cause of death was given as a result of injuries sustained in the collision and uncontrollable bleeding from the liver.
Mr Glover, a scaffolder, lived in Bottom Breck Close in Norwich. He was born on January 26, 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
A pre-inquest review has been set for April 8 2019.
Since Mr Glover's death a fundraising campaign for his family, led by The Boundary Pub in Aylsham Road in Norwich where he was a regular, has raised more than £2,000.

The pub's landlord Jonathan Childs, a friend of Mr Glover's, said he was a 'good man' and 'proud to serve' in the local regiment of the Royal Anglians (Vikings).
Mr Childs said the pub will hold a charity day of soul music on January 26, which would have been Mr Glover's birthday. Kane Hornigold will be shaving his hair off at the event, and has raised £600.
