WESTBERE. FATAL FALL FROM A LOFT.

The East Kent Coroner (Mr. K. M. Mercer) held an inquiry at the "Westbere Butts Inn" on Friday respecting the death of an agricultural labourer named Henry Divers, an old man seventy-six years of age.

From the evidence that was adduced it appeared that the deceased was in a loft at work shifting straw at Tile Lodge Farm, when he stepped back and fell down the opening in the floor through which there was a step ladder on to the brick foundation of the wall below - a distance of about fifteen feet. He was taken home unconscious and died on Thursday. Dr. Greasley attended the deceased, who succumbed to Hemorrhage of the brain and compression.

A verdict of Accidental Death, was returned by the jury.
