- Tyne Tees
It has emerged that staff working for Co-Op Funeral care at Birtley in Gateshead mixed up bodies, and took the wrong one to a cremation service.
The mistake wasn't picked up until it was too late, and one family subsequently had to have a funeral without the body of their relative.
Two people have since been dismissed and a full investigation into the incident, which happened last month, is now underway.
