Mind how you go

88 year-old James Andersen Semmence was knocked down and killed by a car in Northumberland, UK, last November. The car was driving under the speed limit at the time, and the verdict was accidental death.

His inquest has just learned that he was hard of hearing and had blurred vision, following an operation to remove cataracts.

Semmence was on his way to visit his wife’s grave at the nearby cemetery.
