An inquest has opened into the death of a Great Yarmouth man who was hit by a train in Norwich.

Luke Coggins, 25, of Southampton Place, Great Yarmouth died on Friday, January 5 after he was hit near to the Crown Point Depot.

All lines surrounding Norwich were blocked from around 7am.

British Transport Police said they were called to the level crossing at Cremorne Lane at 7.22am and were treating the death as “non-suspicious”.

A number of trains were cancelled and bus replacement services were put on while emergency services attended the scene.

His provisional cause of death was given as multiple injuries due to a rail collision.

Senior coroner Jacqueline Lake adjourned the inquest to a pre-inquest review on July 9.
