In a classic example of misreading a room, a funeral in the British town of Milton Keynes was interrupted mid-service by a member of staff telling a grieving family to return to social distancing.
When Craig Bicknell and his brother, whose father had died, moved their chairs closer to their grieving mom to offer comfort, a member of the crematorium staff barged in and gave the pair a loud telling-off, saying: ‘You can’t move the chairs! You were told!’
No one’s saying it’s easy to enforce Covid rules, but perhaps a sensitive whisper in the ear was in order.
