"... Major Stuart arrived on the scene with 80 soldiers of the Worcester Regiment. They cleared the track at bayonet point and the crowd scrambled up the embankment. As a result of some stone throwing, Stuart ordered a firing squad to shoot at the young men sitting on a low wall in the garden of 6, High Street. Two men, Jack John and Leonard Worsell, were killed, one severely injured and one shot in the hand" (an extract from Remembrance of a Riot by John Edwards)
