A woman who died in a fail-to-stop collision on the A47 in King's Lynn was a benefits advisor who lived in the town.

Donna Miles, 36, died on October 21 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, an inquest heard today.

Ms Miles, of St James Court, had been the backseat passenger in a blue Vauxhall Zafira, which was on the eastbound carriageway between the Pullover and Saddlebow roundabouts.

On October 19, at around 6.45pm, the Zafira and a dark-coloured Ford Fiesta were involved in an incident resulting in the Zafira colliding with several road signs.

Ms Miles, the driver of the Zafira and another passenger were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment, where Ms Miles died two days later.
