A painful case of sudden death occurred on Thursday morning at the office of the “Newbury Weekly News”. Mr. Ernest Hill, a native of Hungerford, while at work at his case, complained of tightness of the chest, and falling down expired within a few minutes. Everything possible was done by his fellow workers, and Dr. Wyllie and Dr. Simmons, who saw the body afterwards, pronounced life extinct. The deceased on completion of his apprenticeship as a printer at Hungerford, came to the “Weekly News” office as an improver, and later filled a responsible position with Messrs. Spottiswoode in London. Returning to Newbury about eighteen months since, he married and lived in Priory Road. Since his return, he has done light work at the “News” office.
