A motorcyclist who died in a Rackheath crash has been named.

Norfolk Coroner’s Service identified the man as David Gooch, who was 56.

The inquest opening into his death was due to take place at the Norfolk Coroner’s Court in Carrow House, Norwich, today but was postponed.

It was going to be held by area coroner Yvonne Blake.

The accident on Salhouse Road, Rackheath, took place at around 8.50am on March 16.

Police officers were called to reports of a collision involving a motorcyclist and a Scania HGV.

The rider of the motorbike, Mr Gooch, died at the scene.

But the driver of the HGV was uninjured.

The road was closed while emergency services attended, and re-opened around 12.40pm on March 16.

Norfolk Police wants to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision, including those with dashcam footage.

Witnesses should contact the Wymondham Roads Policing Team on 101.
