A gravedigger has been suspended and a family subjected to ridicule after posing with the corpse of a man who died 23 years ago. An image of council worker Celestino Reyna, 55, alongside the cadaver and the husband of the dead man’s niece, was sent to her work colleagues via Whatsapp. The photo then ended up on social media, where is was then widely shared – and Mr Reyna recognised by his employers.

‘We never thought this could have such serious consequences, and I did not want to show any lack of respect for my uncle,’ the apologetic niece, who wishes to remain anonymous, said.
