An inquest into his death was opened this week at County Hall in Maidstone.

The coroner's court heard how Mr Licorish was airlifted to hospital following the single-vehicle crash on Millenium Way.

He had two major operations on a traumatic brain injury at Kings College Hospital in London.

Despite the two procedures – one on the evening of the crash, April 2, and one the following day – Mr Licorish tragically sucummbed to his injuries on April 5.

His cause of death was given as a traumatic brain injury caused by a road traffic accident.

A full inquest will be held later this year.

Police are continuing to appeal for information around the incident, which took place at around 4.45pm on April 2.

A spokesman said: "Investigators have renewed their appeal for witnesses to a collision near Broadstairs.

"Emergency services were called after a silver Ford Focus was involved in a one-vehicle collision in Millennium Way at around 4.45pm on Sunday 2 April 2023.

"Officers attended along with South East Coast Ambulance Service, Kent Fire and Rescue Service and an air ambulance, which flew a 27-year-old man to a London hospital.

"He has sadly since died from his injuries."
