"Killed Returning From Dance
The death of Stuart Henry Jones, aged 26, of Grosmont, Hewelsfield, near Lydney, from injuries received on January 9, when he was knocked down by a motorcycle, was due to the negligence, not amounting to criminal negligence, of the motor-cyclist, it was decided at the inquest at Gloucester yesterday. John Jones, of Clifton Cottage Hewelsfield, a cousin of the dead man, said they were walking home from a dance when the motor-cycle came up behind and collided with them. He received only slight injuries. The motor - cyclist, Frederick Coles, of Tutshill, near Chepstow, said he pulled out to overtake the pedestrians and as he did so his pillion passenger slipped over to the right, throwing the motor-cycle off balance and into the pedestrians."
