A relative of former British prime minister David Lloyd George died aged 93 after falling at her home in Crondall last year, a coroner has ruled.
Lady Ursula Tenby, the wife of the 3rd Viscount Tenby who is the grandson of David Lloyd George, slipped in her bedroom while adjusting a slipper and cut her head on the dressing table.
Her daughter Clare heard the fall and found her mother on her back but conscious. Lady Tenby was initially taken to the minor injuries unit in Haslemere, but was later advised to go to A&E at the Royal County Hospital in Guildford.
An initial CT scan showed there were no abnormalities other than the minor laceration on Lady Tenby’s head which was repaired with glue.
However, Lady Ursula deteriorated overnight and a further CT scan revealed a large subdural heamatoma.
Lady Tenby died two days after her fall. The area coroner Jason Pegg concluded at Portsmouth Coroner’s Court that her death was the result of an accidental fall and her frailty had contributed to her passing.
