A date has been set for the inquest into the death of a teenager involved in a crash on the A134 at Mundford.

Matthew Woodward, of Shropham, near Attleborough, died on Saturday, September 2 when his red Mini Cooper was involved in a collision with a blue Vauxhall Zafira.

A pre-inquest review opened at Norwich coroner’s office where senior coroner Jacqueline Lake set a date of April 11 for the full inquest.

In a statement issued in the wake of his death via Norfolk police, the parents of the 18-year-old said: “If you ever knew or got the chance to meet our beautiful boy, you’d know he was one of the most polite, caring, funny young men you could ever wish to meet.

“He worked hard at night to earn his money to make his little Mini stand out from the crowd. His pride and joy, which sadly never brought him home.”
