An inquest into the death of a young motorcyclist has been adjourned until later this year.

Jack Rogers, 25, died on July 6, 2017 following a two-vehicle collision on the A146 at Chedgrave, near Loddon, close to the junction with Norwich Road.

He was riding a Suzuki GSX-R motorbike, which was travelling along the A146 towards Lowestoft when it was in collision with a blue Vauxhall Vectra which had turned right.

Mr Rogers, known as ‘Jacko’, died at the scene. At the time of his death the digger driver was living at New Inn Hill in Rockland St Mary.

During a pre-inquest review today (May 1) the senior coroner for Norfolk, Jacqueline Lake, adjourned the inquest until August 1 after stating that the Norfolk & Suffolk’s Roads Policing Unit are still obtaining evidence. The inquest is due to be held at Norfolk Coroner’s Court on Thorpe Road, Norwich.
