Mr. Fleetwood BOOBYER (34), of Stanmoor Bridge, Burrowbridge, died in the Taunton Hospital early on Friday morning from head injuries sustained in an accident at a Burrowbridge bakery the previous night. It is understood that he was attending to a small engine which drives a charging plant when by some means he became entangled in the machinery. He leaves a widow and young child.

The West Somerset Coroner (Mr. Geoffrey P. CLARKE) on Saturday opened and adjourned the inquest at Taunton until to-day (Friday).

The Coroner remarked: “This is a case where there may be some question of the Inspector of worshops <sic> and factories coming in.”
