I feel she was from Aspull.

I met one lad who'd worked there, he was massive! About 6 foot four and over20 stone. He rode a Harley Davidson, because he couldn't afford a proper motorbike!
Anyroadup, I noticed he had no fingers on one hand.
"Wheeer's t'fingers gone"? I asked, tactfully.

It turned out he'd worked at MetalBox. From what I gather,it could've been DWI, because he told me his fingers were taken off by a machine what punched cans into shape.
Apparently, a fitter had been fixing the machine, he'd put his hand in the way just as the fitter switched it back on, machine punched, he lost his fingers. I didn't ask him if he knew Dorothy. Probably not.
I can imagine a lot of accidents would've occurred there?
