The grieving family of a Covid victim say they are heartbroken after a funeral director refused to dress him before he was cremated over infection fears.

Relatives of Kenneth Malet were told he would have to be put in his coffin in the hospital gown he died in due to "company policy." Son Jordan Malet, 39, has since blasted uncaring funeral directors at a Kent branch of Co-op Funeralcare for treating his dad "like a number".

Kenneth, 67, passed away unexpectedly on January 9 from coronavirus-related pneumonia after being hospitalised for an unrelated issue.
