Maid tidied up round corpse
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.
