The driver of the HGV was treated at the scene. He was given self-care advice and subsequently discharged by paramedics.
The inquest, presided over by coroner Professor Catherine Mason, only focused on Mr Hussain’s death. A cause of death was not given during the short hearing.

Inquiries into the collision are ongoing. Professor Mason adjourned the inquest to a later date, pending further investigations.
