Inquest opens into death of well-known former farmer on Barrow to Ulverston coast road

AN inquest has been opened into the death of a well-known former farmer who was hit by a car on the Barrow to Ulverston coast road.

Henry Morphet died on Saturday, close to his Bardsea home after being involved in a collision with a red Vauxhall Corsa at 9.50am. 

Police later announced that the 76-year-old had died.

The inquest into his death was opened at Barrow Town Hall earlier today, by South and East Cumbria deputy coroner, Mr Alan Sharp.

It was then formally adjourned until such a time as the police have completed their investigations around the incident.
