AN INQUEST has been opened and adjourned into the death of a pensioner who died three weeks after he was involved in a motorbike crash.

Roger Farley, from Linden Lea, Fareham, died at Southampton General Hospital on June 13.

The 71-year-old, who was riding a beige Honda ST1100L touring motorcycle, lost control on the A32 at the junction with Filmore Lane at West Meon Hut at 9.45am on May 25, and he was thrown into the road.

The causes of Mr Farley’s death were outlined during a brief hearing of the coroner’s court at Chandlers Ford as being from brain injury, acute renal failure, cardiac arrest and multiple injuries from the crash.
