Woman drowned at Worcester

This morning at 9.30, as Mr. Albert Webb, the Bathing Barge Attendant, was walking from one barge to the other, he noticed some clothing in about two feet of water, near the bank. With his pole and hook he reached the clothes and found that the body of a very old woman was in the water....There were a lot of footmarks on the bank which suggested that the woman had walked up and down the bank a good deal before she got in the water.

The body has been identified as that of Mrs. Parnham, 11, Newport Street.
