IN a disturbing move as the coronavirus pandemic continues to claim lives, a temporary mortuary has been constructed in the main car park of the South Essex Crematorium at Corbets Tey, Upminster.

The South Essex Crematorium states on its website: “In line with our major incident emergency plans and on behalf of London borough councils, we are building a temporary mortuary at South Essex Crematorium as part of the London-wide response to coronavirus.

“This is being done as a sensible precaution and similar arrangements are made during any London-wide response to incidents.”
