Assistant coroner Lisa Morris opened the inquests into the deaths of 86-year-old Jean May Daniels and her daughter, 67-year-old Joy, on Wednesday.

It is believed they died after their Nissan Micra collided with a wall, on Welbeck Road, at around 6.30pm, on January 2.

Joy died on January 3, and Jean died on January 15.

Both inquests were adjourned until April 12, when they will be linked.

The assistant coroner expressed her condolences to the family.
