Henley Standard

February 18, 1966

A HENLEY woman praised ambulancemen for coming to her aid at the scene of a double-death crash. Winifred Titley, of  King’s Walk, escaped with only slight injuries after her car was involved in a fatal accident on the M4 at Slough. She was driving her Austin 1960 towards Maidenhead, when an Austin Healey Spitfire sports car careered across the central reservation from the other carriage way and collided with her car, killing the two male occupants.

Police in Henley have a short-haired terrier-type mongrel with a white coat and predominantly brown/tan head. It was found with a collar and lead attached in the Wilson Avenue area at about 8am on Tuesday.

Goods worth £900 stolen from businesses in Henley and Reigate have been discovered in a loft of a house in London. Dennis Bott, of Wynford Road, Islington, was sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment for receiving the items and hiding them on behalf of two thieves. The judge said that although he had nothing to do with the actual theft, he felt the offence was serious enough to warrant a custodial sentence.
