An inquest into a motorcyclist who was killed in a crash with a car has been delayed pending potential criminal proceedings.

Steven Mouncer, 54, died on October 26, 2018, in Needham, south Norfolk, near Harleston.

Area coroner Yvonne Blake, held a review into the death at Norfolk Coroner's Court in Norwich, on November 5.

Ms Blake said: "He was involved in an rtc between his motorbike and a car. The inquest cannot continue if there is going to be a prosecution."

She adjourned it for another review on February 10.

Donations from the service were given to the British Biker Relief Foundation.

Bikers carried out a funeral escort around the town and supported Mr Mouncer's family by riding to Waveney Memorial Park and Crematorium after the service.
