Norwich lorry driver dies in crash

An inquest has been launched into the death of a lorry driver from Walcott involved in a crash in Cheshire.

David Astley, of Ostend Road, was killed last Wednesday after a collision between two heavy goods vehicles at Tanhouse Industrial Estate in Widnes.

Police said the other driver was not hurt in the crash with the 56-year-old, which took place just before 1.15pm.

The inquest was opened and adjourned earlier this week.
