An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of a popular 24-year-old who died after a road crash near Thetford.

Bradley Raper, who lived in Brooks Drive, Scarning, near Dereham, died on Wednesday, October 3, the day after he was involved in a road collision on the A1066 near the Shadwell Estate.
