Godmanchester factory worker died of head injuries

A WOMAN killed at a Godmanchester factory last week died as a result of head injuries.

Coroner David Morris opened and adjourned an inquest into the death of Zydre Groblyte this afternoon (Wednesday).

During the short hearing at the Huntingdon Law Courts, Mr Morris said the 23-year-old Lithuanian woman had only worked at the factory for two weeks. He said it is believed she became trapped in the workings of a press machine in the printing department.

Emergency services were called to RGE Engineering, in The Avenue, shortly after 2pm on Friday, April 27. However, at 2.22pm, Ms Groblyte, of New Road, Woodston, Peterborough, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The preliminary results of a post mortem carried out by Papworth Hospital pathologist Martin Goddard on April 30 show she died of a traumatic head injury.
