Homeowner finds stranger's ashes in his back garden

A man found a stranger's ashes buried in his back garden 46 years after moving in.

Bill Stephenson, 70 - a retired hospital telephonist - discovered the remains of someone who died in 2008, but has no idea how they got there.

He said: "It's frightened the life out of all of us - but how it's got buried in the garden nobody knows.

"Why would somebody bury their relative's remains in a stranger's garden? Why not just scatter them?

"I have no knowledge of him whatsoever. We have been looking at the deeds of the houses on the street and there's nothing there."
