Do NOT do-it-yourself

Why on earth did Ronald Easton think it was a good idea to climb onto the roof of his house in Bigbury-on-Sea, Devon, on 24 October, to try to fix his TV aerial? He was 102.

It was a car smash waiting to happen.

“Ton-Up Ron” as he was known – he used to be a rally car driver – got stuck there, was found three days later suffering from hypothermia, and died in the local hospital on 2 November.
