The inquest into the death of a well-known Norfolk photographer who died in a car crash near her home has been pushed back to a further date.

Elizabeth Handy, 77, of Low Road, Bressingham, died in a four-vehicle crash on the A1066 in Garboldisham in March last year.

Norfolk senior coroner Jacqueline Lake adjourned the inquest to May 21 as a police investigation is continuing.

A popular photographer, the grandmother-of-four was best known for her work adapting jigsaw images into what she called ‘joiners’ - composite portraits that combined at least three images of an individual in one picture.

She also created portraits inspired by 17th Century Dutch Still Life where she asked her subjects to choose five personal objects which said something about their lives and personalities.

The result was a personal artwork and a constant reminder to each subject of who they wanted to be.
