Capacity issue for many South West cemeteries

A number of cemeteries in Devon and Cornwall could reach capacity in less than a decade.

Falmouth cemetery in Cornwall will run out of space in three to five years, while Torridge District Council estimates it could be full within seven years if it does not buy more land.

Bodmin and the Isles of Scilly predict their cemeteries will be full within 10 to 15 years, as Emma Thomasson reports.
