Fall from stairs leads to fatality

A retired draughtsman was killed after he fell from the stairs of a coach as it drew up outside his holiday hotel in Devon. Paramedics took James Hartill, aged 79, to Torbay Hospital in Torquay after the incident but he died of his injuries. Reports suggest that the man was standing on the rear stairs and lost his balance, striking his head on the stairwell, when the coach reversed into the car park of the Water’s Edge Hotel.
