Widow died six weeks after fall

The Blackburn coroner Mr George Wightman recorded a verdict of misadventure at an inquest on grover's widow Mrs Harriet Bamford, 82, of Rockcliffe Street, who died in Blackburn Infirmary six weeks after falling downstairs at her home.

Mr John Michael Torry, pathologist, said that Mrs Bamford had suffered severe bruising of the brain, causing unconsciousness. Her immobilisation following the fall led to pneumonia and a blood clot in the lung, which caused her death.
