A YOUNG mother who died after being struck by a lorry has been named.

Lorraine Roebuck was 35 and lived at Ashleigh Vale, Kendray.

An inquest was opened last week and adjourned pending further enquiries on behalf of the coroner.

Shortly after 9am on June 27, a red/white Scania goods vehicle is understood to have stopped on Grange Lane towards the Stairfoot roundabout to allow a black vehicle to emerge from Doncaster Road.

Lorraine walked down Doncaster Road and crossed Grange Lane in front of the goods vehicle, heading towards the Black Bull public house. The vehicle then set off and collided with her in the carriageway.
