The main contributing factor in the death of a Swinton pensioner injured in a car accident is not clear, a court heard.

Reginald Ensor, 82, of Swinton was involved a road traffic collision in September 2013, and was discharged from Rotherham General Hospital hours later. He was readmitted a week later, and died in hospital days later. Speaking at the inquest at Doncaster Coroners Court, forensic pathologist Dr Naomi Carter confirmed Mr Ensor died from multi-organ failure and bronchopneumonia.

She explained that Mr Ensor sustained two broken left ribs from the road traffic collision, but when he was initially admitted to hospital there was no sign of internal damage.
