Notes

International Footballer Believed Drowned
JAMES HAMPSON, OF BLACKPOOL

James Hampson, Blackpool's international centre forward, and Mr H.V. Newsome, of Kenwyn Avenue, Blackpool, are missing, and believed to be drowned following a collision between a small fishing yacht in which they and four others were sailing and an outward bound trawler off Fleetwood last night. Their four companions were rescued.

Mr Newsome was the youngest brother of Alderman L. Newsome, a former Mayer of Blackpool. He was 43, of independent means, and there are two sons aged 13 and 5. His wife has just recovered from a serious illness.

The party were returning after a day's fishing, and the collision occurred in the Wyre Channel in the darkness.

The trawler was the Cameo, of Fleetwood, outward bound for the fishing grounds in charge of Skipper J. Ainsworth, of Fleetwood.
