INQUEST WITNESS KILLED IN ACCIDENT An extraordinary feature of an inquest on two victims of a road collision, opened at Cheltenham on Saturday, was that one of the chief witnesses has since been killed as the result of another road accident. This fact was referred to by Mr. J. D. Lane, the Cheltenham Coroner, when he intimated that he would not be in a position to complete the inquiry into the deaths of an R.A.F. motor cyclist and a lady pillion passenger, who were killed when they came into collision with a motor car at the Gotherington cross roads on the evening of June 27. The inquiry was adjourned until July 28 to enable witnesses injured in the accident to be called. The victims of the accident were Sergt. John Barratt (34), stationed at Stoke Orchard, whose home was at Flat 9, 30, Mitcham-street, Marylebone,( London; and Miss Gwynetti Doreen Loach (23). aircraff worker, of Phillip-streefy Coseley, Staffs.
