An 81-year-old York man fell to his death through a hole in his bathroom floor left by a builders’ employee, a jury has heard.

In a statement, Kenneth Armitage’s daughter Susan said she became concerned when she went round to his house in the dark to find the lights out and the curtains open.

She searched the house, calling his name and found him lying covered in blood on the floor of the kitchen below his bathroom, Leeds Crown Court heard.

Above him was a hole in the ceiling between the kitchen and the bathroom.

“From what I could see, it looked as if he had gone through the hole in the ceiling, though he wasn’t lying directly under the hole,” the statement said. “There was ceiling plaster all over the kitchen floor.”
