Ex-mayor run over by her own car

A former mayor has died after she was run over by her own car as she unloaded her shopping.

Beryl Healey, 79, became trapped under the Renault Modus in the driveway of her home in Pococks Road, Eastbourne, East Sussex, yesterday morning.

Builders working nearby went to her help and used a pallet and breeze blocks to try to free her until firefighters arrived, police said.

Ms Healey, a former mayor of Eastbourne, was flown by air ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where she died later the same day.

Sussex Police said she suffered multiple injuries.
