Oxfordshire coroner Darren Salter said Mr Visser was born in South Africa, and was the director of a cabinet-making company. 

Speaking at the inquest opening this afternoon, he said: “He suffered a severe traumatic brain injury following a fall from a skateboard. 

“He was treated in hospital but deteriorated.”

A full inquest date has been set for January 14. 

Police issued an appeal for witnesses last week, and said Mr Visser had been travelling along the main road in Stoke Row on an electric skateboard. 

The force said it does not believe any other vehicles were involved in the incident, which happened at 7.30pm on July 17.
