The following newspaper report is from The Yorkshire Post dated 4th August 1953 and refers to a tragedy that occurred off the Yorkshire coast

The Inquest took place on 6th August 1953 at Driffield in East Yorkshire. It was reported in the following days Yorkshire Post and Leeds Mercury (7th August 1953) 

This is the report from The Sheffield Telegraph dated 7th August 1953. I am afraid the print quality is rather poor

Raymond's hairdressers shop is still on Commonside but is now a student accommodation bureau - it is the one next to the white box van
