Elderly woman dies in hospital after collapsing in Hereford street - police appeal
POLICE are trying to identify a woman who died after collapsing in Hereford.
The woman, who is in her 70s or 80s, was found on the junction of Mill Street and Nelson Street in St James at around 1.55pm yesterday.
She was rushed to hospital, but was pronounced dead later in the afternoon.
Police have since tried to identify her, but have been unable to.
Officers have received no reports about a missing person who matches her description, while house-to-house enquiries in the streets near to where she was found have also proved unsuccessful.
Detective Sergeant Kirsty Smith said: “This is a very unusual appeal for help but at the present time we are no closer to identifying this lady.
“Nothing she was carrying has offered us any clues so we would like to ask for help from the public as we attempt to identify her and break the sad news to her family and friends.
“The lady was described as being white, aged in her 70's or 80's, having a slim or slight build and being between 5ft 2 and 5ft 4.
“She also had short, straight, grey hair and was wearing pink tortoise shell type glasses.
“When she was found she was wearing a three quarter length taupe colour mac, a pale blue blouse, black cardigan, dark grey check skirt, navy and orange coloured scarf and black lace up shoes.
“We are very keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the lady from the description we have released today, or who believes that they may know who she is as they have not seen her for the past day or so.
“Anyone who believes they may have information about this lady is asked to call police officers in CID in Hereford on 101 as soon as possible.”
