Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A HO­TEL cham­ber­maid cleaned around a ho­tel guest ly­ing in bed – only to re­alise the next day she was dead.

The woman qui­etly hoovered around Pamela Black­wood, 48, as­sum­ing she was just asleep, an in­quest heard.

But when she went back in the next day and Miss Black­wood was in the same po­si­tion, she re­alised she was dead.

A post mortem re­vealed the for­mer men­tal health nurse died from a drugs over­dose at the Ibis Ho­tel in Southamp­ton, Hants.

The coroner recorded a ver­dict that Miss Black­wood in­tended to take her own life.
