Inquiries into the death of 45-year-old Angel Hernan-Fernandez have been delayed as the 'offending' driver in the collision that killed him has also died.

Mr Hernan-Fernandez had been riding a Kawasaki motorcycle on the A10 at Hilgay on Sunday, June 5 at around 11.50am when he was involved in a collision at the junction with Modney Road Bridge.

Two motorcyclists, including Mr Hernan-Fernandez, were travelling towards Downham Market when they were involved in a collision with a BMW X3.

Mr Hernan-Fernandez was fatally injured and pronounced dead at the scene.

The second motorcycle, a Honda 599, avoided the crash but hit with the kerb, causing the rider, a man in his 30s, to come off. He suffered minor injuries.
