Lewisham 'departure lounge' tackles death taboos

A "departure lounge" with a difference has appeared at a shopping centre.

Designed to encourage conversations about death, it's hoped the project in Lewisham will tackle some of the taboos around dying.

The Academy of Medical Sciences, which created the installation, wants to demystify death.
