There was a sequel to the Cleethorpes burn- ing fatality at Grimsby County Police-court on Tuesday, when Svendsen, a Swede, was summoned for having failed to take proper measures to prevent her six-year-old child being burned to death. The parents had only moved into the chouse on the previous day, and there was no fireguard. The child's clothing became ignited, and the mother was badly burned about the hands in extinguishing the flames. The Deputy-Chief said it was a sad case, but he had taken the proceedings for the sake of other children, in order that their parents might see the importance of complying with the Act in providing a fireguard. With that object in view he would withdraw the case upon payment of costs. The Bench adopted this course, after issuing a warning that in any future fatality of a similar nature serious consequences would ensue.
