Paul Nodding, from Ryefields, Thurston, worked for Felixstowe haulage company Goldstar Transport, which also has a logistics centre based at Woolpit.

The 56-year-old is understood to have died after becoming trapped between two lorries at Toyota’s vehicle manufacturing plant in Burnaston, a village south of Derby.

The tragedy occurred at around 12.40am on January 22.

Assistant coroner Louise Pinder, of the Derby coroner’s office, opened Mr Nodding’s inquest late last week. The full inquest has been adjourned until a later date.

An inquiry is currently under way involving the Health and Safety Executive and Derbyshire police into the circumstances surrounding Mr Nodding’s death.

However, police have said it is not being treated as suspicious.

A statement from Toyota shortly after the incident read: “The driver was visiting the site in order to deliver a container of parts and to collect an empty container to return to Felixstowe.

“It was whilst making this delivery/collection that the accident occurred.”
