He probably took one look at the price hikes in store!

Seriously, very sad story and respect to the gentleman and his family.

Good to see the police cordon tape picture is getting maximum expose again.

Ow.

I had a friend who recently lost his grandma. Very careless I thought - maybe she'd slipped between the cushions or rolled under the sideboard, I asked?

Morgue humour. :-\

My condolences to the man's family. My parents are also in their eighties. And shop at Tesco.

Wonder if they used the same tape around the four hundred cars they stopped today? You know - give the rest of those in the piled-up traffic sommat to look at, right? Still they did get 35 people for seat belt infractions. That was ll worthwhile then wasn't it?

Nice decorations for Hanukkah, maybe?
