AN inquest has been opened and adjourned for a 23-year-old man who fell from the Orwell Bridge.

Justin Clarke, from Ipswich, died at around 12.10pm on April 14.

He was formally identified by his mother and a post mortem carried out last Monday gave the cause of death as multiple internal injuries.

Police were inundated with 999 calls from motorists who looked on helplessly as the man fell, ending up on The Strand at Wherstead.
