Rose Ridley Death & Cause
His death was committed during planning, along with Robert Jenrick, the housing secretary searching in a hotel in Sandown Park and an application made by the Jockey Club for more than 300 homes, which was unanimously rejected by Surrey councilors last year. The intervention raised concerns about conflicts of interest due to the Jockey Club’s connections to senior Conservative figures and donors. In March, Mr. and Mrs. Paterson spent 15 days with both the coronavirus and the quarantine, but the deputy said they were recovering, although they felt ‘very strange’.
Mr. Paterson said today: ‘I must let you know that my wife Rose is dead in our family home in Shropshire. Rose and I got married for 40 happy years. He was a wonderful, loving wife, mother and grandmother. His death was a terrible shock for all of us’.
Western Mercia Police said the death has been treated inexplicably at this time. A spokesperson said: We can confirm that a woman’s body was found in the wooded area near Pant Lane in Sodylt in Ellesmere. It is believed that there is no third party involvement at this stage ‘. He added that he found the body ‘early this morning’.
Paying tribute, Sandy Dudgeon, Senior Steward of The Jockey Club, said: ‘This is tragic news and our thoughts go out to Rose’s husband Owen and all members of her family.
‘Rose was a wonderful person and involved in so many aspects of our sport. She was a skilled Chairman at Aintree, a valued member of our Board of Stewards and headed up our Horse Welfare Group. She also enjoyed participating at grassroots level over many years.
‘We appreciated her contribution very much and my fellow Stewards and I looked forward to hearing her sound views on a subject, where she was always sensitive to the best course of action for racing. She will be missed greatly for the person she was.’
