An inquest opened into the death of the student and part-time retail assistant at County Hall in Maidstone this morning. Coroner Alan Blundson said Mr Bruce’s cause of death was the result of multiple injuries including fractures and internal organ damage.
Mr Blundson said a full inquest hearing would take place next February due to the death being “trauma as a result of a road traffic collision”.
