Inquest opened into death of pensioner found near level crossing

An inquest has been formally opened into the death of an 80-year-old woman whose body was spotted by a train driver near a south Shropshire level crossing.

Senior coroner John Ellery was told that Pamela Reece, from Temeside Estate, in Ludlow, had been reported missing before her death on November 13, 2021.

Mr Ellery, sitting at Shirehall, in Shrewsbury, on Wednesday, was told that the driver of a passenger train reported seeing a body at Saltmoor Foot Crossing, near Steverton Road, Ludlow, to British Transport Police. The transport police concluded that her death was not suspicious. She had been identified by her fingerprints.

On hearing the evidence so far Mr Ellery decided to adjourn a full inquest to March 15, 2022.
