A 15-year-old was killed when she was hit by a lorry after getting off a bus in Norfolk, an inquest has heard.

Martha Seaward was struck after she left the bus on the A148 in Upper Sheringham, near the junction with Lodge Hill, on Friday.

The girl, from Holt, suffered extensive injuries and died at the scene.
