James Green

Constable Green was on Crook Street, Bolton on Monday 22nd July 1889 when a horse drawing a lurry, took fright and bolted. Constable Green ran and took hold of the reins to try and stop it. He had almost succeeded when another man, Joseph Lancaster ran to help him. Lancaster fell, and it is thought that Constable Green may have tripped over him. Constable Green received serious injuries to his right knee and bruising to other parts of his body. He was taken to the Infirmary, where his lower right leg was amputated. He died as a result of complications.
