AN inquest into the deaths of a motorcyclist and a cyclist who died following a crash has been opened and adjourned.

Chesterfield Coroner’s court heard that motorcycle rider Kim Broomhead from Sheffield died when his Suzuki GSXR collided with a man on pedal bike on the A621 road between Baslow and Owler Bar at around 12.55pm on Sunday.

The cyclist was also killed in the smash, and has been named as Matthew Hook, 28, from Sheffield City Centre.

Speaking at the inquest, PC Andrew Prince, said the cyclist - who was riding a Giant road bike - was in his 30’s and wearing a dark blue cycling top with the words Kalenji on, dark blue cycling shorts with white panels that said Gordon & Smith, and a blue and white cycling helmet.

Deputy coroner, Nigel Anderson, adjourned the inquest on Monday.
