Some sources say she was struck by the obby orse framework and suffered a serious neck injury and died later in hospital. A very sad affair.

How utterly, heartbreakingly awful. From the BBC:

I heard that the poor lady was found injured, not by the Obby Oss at all, perhaps as the result of an assault. I have no confirmation of this rumour. Does anyone else have any information?

there would be maybe hundreds of witnesses and videos galore if it involved the Hobby 'Oss.

The Police have two lines of enquiry,one that she was struck by the Blue horse or she may have been assaulted.
The Blue Oss was examined and returned to the team.
The Lady was the wife of the landlord of a local pub.
There have been no recent updates in the local papers or on local tv, only that enquiries are continuing and if anyone has further information
would they give it to the Police.

Goodness! If the latter, then we're talking about a murder enquiry. I hope the good folk of Padstow are not too traumatised by the event.
