Firemen called as two die in head-on crash near Evesham

Firemen had to be called to free four people from the wreckage of two cars in which two men died on the outskirts of Evesham yesterday.

The cars crashed head-on half a mile outside Evesham on the main road to Badsey.  The dead men were later named as Peter John Cornish, aged 27, an unmarried builder’s labourer of Littleworth Street, Evesham, and Philip Hall, 26-year-old father of a girl of Bretforton Road, Badsey.

Mr Cornish was driving towards Evesham and Mr Hall, a compositor, was a passenger in a car travelling in the opposite direction.

Mr Hall belonged to a mobile disco group called the Sound Machine which had just finished playing at a party at an Evesham restaurant.
