Sudden Death at a York Inquest

At York, to-day, Mr. Joseph Fearne (72), an ex-inspector of police, was summoned on a Coroner's jury, and arrived at the place where the inquest was to be held with the son of another juryman.  Mr. Fearne appeared in excellent health, but whilst he was talking to a policeman he called out "Oh," and immediately expired.  (Yorkshire Evening News, December 27th, 1909)
