"An accident occurred at Wordsley, Staffordshire, on Wednesday, by which two lives were lost. Opposite Wordsley Church runs a high wall belonging to the executors of a gentleman named Purish, which was backed up by a loose kind of soil. The heavy rains appear to have sapped the mortar, and this, coupled with the high winds of Sunday, brought down a portion of the wall on that day. On Wednesday, another part of the wall fell while many persons were passing. Immediately afterwards, a youth named William Green was picked out of the debris with a crushed head, his brains being scattered on the road. Life was, of course, gone. Two other lads, named Joseph Collins and Harry Poole, were severely injured. It was at first thought that no one else had met with harm; but when the soil and brickwork were turned over, the crushed and lifeless body of a girl was found. Her name was Selina Collins, and was the sister of the lad Collins."
