An inquest into the death of a man who died in an explosion at a chemical plant in Norwich has been adjourned.
Robert Cranston, 46, died in at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on July 27 2018, after suffering serious injuries following an incident at Briar Chemicals on Sweet Briar Road, Norwich.
The inquest into his death was opened on 20 August 2018, then adjourned.
At an pre-inquest review, held at Norfolk Coroner's Court on Thursday, Yvonne Blake, area coroner for Norfolk, said the full inquest into Mr Cranston's death was not ready to go ahead as it was unclear as to whether or not the case would be taken to prosecution.
The case has been adjourned for a further review on January 17 2020.
