 :D  I sent an email to Worksop Library as suggested, and within couple of hours had a reply with attached scans from the Worksop Guardian of 17th October 1919 which gave extensive details of the accident and a photo of one of the victims.  Alas the photo was not of John Thomas White, but of the other man killed.

Still, an excellent result and great service from the library.
