Two men who suffered fatal injuries in a crash on the A47 have been named.
James Cox, 46 and Riki Boughen, 43, died after their Ford Transit van was involved in a head-on collision with a coach. Both were from the Wisbech area.
Inquests into both men's deaths will be opened by Norfolk coroner Jacqueline Lake at the coroner's court in Norwich tomorrow morning.
Police are still investigating the cause of the crash and the hearing is likely to be adjourned until their inquiries are complete, before a full inquest is heard.
The accident happened on an unlit single-carriageway stretch of the road at Constitution Hill, around a mile east of the Hardwick Roundabout on Wednesday, January 17.
