Woman dies after horse and cart incident at Bury St Edmunds country fair
A woman has died following an incident involving a horse and carriage at a country fair.
Terrified visitors screamed and fled as the horse and cart bolted into the crowd at the Nowton Park Country Fair in Bury St Edmunds at around 4.30pm on Sunday.
A 57-year-old woman from Bury St Edmunds was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital with critical injuries and died earlier this morning (Monday).
About 10 other people suffered less serious back or abdominal injuries. All those taken to the West Suffolk Hospital are believed to have been discharged.
An initial investigation into what happened is under way involving the local authorities and the Health and Safety Executive.
