In Pictures: Suffragette struggle
Derby death

The suffragettes did obtain a martyr at the Derby in June 1913. Emily Davison ran from the crowd and attempted to grab the reins of the king's horse, Anmer. She was trampled and died a few days later from her injuries.

The caption on the newspaper report at the time says: 'A remarkable picture, showing Anmer rolling over [jockey Herbert] Jones and Emily Davison in the act of falling.'
