The incident must have happened around the end of October 1922, I have found Charles' death registration and his burial date at Ford Cem

Ford Cemetery, Lancashire, England
I am not sure what years the newspapers go up to on Findmypast, but I will have a look. There is the British Newspaper Archives online (a pay site) but again I am not sure what years they hold. It may be a case of a trip to the library to have a look at the newspapers on microfilm to find anything out. Or get a copy of the death cert which will confirm cause of death.

Hope that helps.
Old genealogists never die......they just lose their census.
