Shaun Rutty, 53, was riding his motorbike on the A41 in Rosehill, Market Drayton, on Saturday, April 17 when he was involved in a collision with a Peugeot 206 and a VW Polo.

Labourer Mr Rutty, from Stafford, was pronounced dead at the scene. His inquest has been adjourned until July 27 at Shirehall.

Last week, police appealed for witnesses to the crash. Anyone with information about the crash, or dash-cam footage, can contact Pc Mark Smith on 101, quoting reference 399i April 17.

Firefighters from Market Drayton, Hodnet and Wellington were all sent to the scene.
