An inquest has concluded that an 83-year-old woman who tripped on the pavement in Woodbridge town centre died as a result of her fall.

Barbara Goldsmith of Lanyard Place in Woodbridge tripped while out with husband David on February 26.

Paramedics were called and took her to Ipswich Hospital.

During recovery, Mrs Goldsmith was transported to Aldeburgh Community Hospital, but after her condition worsened during the journey was transported back to Ipswich Hospital.

Assitant coroner Nigel Parsley said it was not a contributing factor in her death at Ipswich Hospital on April 12, as she had been recovering from that journey when she was back at Ipswich Hospital.

At the inquest held at Beacon House in Ipswich on Tuesday, Mr Parsley concluded it was an accidental death having suffered a fractured humerus following a fall.
