PHOEbE, CHELSEA ReADeRS iBLOg E Continued from Page 1 Pig flu mass graves a grave that is for a number of unrelated persons, excavated mechanically in advance and designed for efficient preparation and use. It says this approach would create a site for multiple graves and consecutive burials but added there must still be marking of the position of individual burials. Freight containers and inflatable storage units may provide extra mortuary space. During the meeting, officials discussed the need for cemeteries and crematoriums to work seven days a week, and the hiring of extra staff. The report also warns there may be a need for shorter services at the chapel or for memorial services to be held at a persons home instead. Whitehall officials are also speaking to coffin- makers to see if they would be able to meet demand. Retired doctors may be called back to work to issue death certificates so GPs could focus on patients. In Westminster, mass cremations are being planned due to a lack of space in its three outlying cemeteries. The council plans to store bodies in a refrigerated warehouse with funeral directors working round the clock and crematorium furnaces burning 24 hours a day. John Barradell, Westminsters deputy chief executive, said the council had to plan for the worst, adding: We have a flu pandemic plan in place which has been rigorously tested. Senior officers meet regularly to monitor the situation. Since the outbreak began this year, 44 people contracting swine flu have died in the UK, of whom 22 came from London. Although the predicted number of victims has been relatively low, experts fear swine flu could strike this autumn in a more virulent form. at a meeting of Whitehall officials and council leaders last month, will affect areas where there may not be enough graves. Within weeks of a full-blown pandemic, burials could more than double and some cemeteries, particularly in inner-city areas, may experience a shortage of grave space, says the report, called Framework For Planners Preparing To Manage Deaths. It discusses using fiLm-mAkErS Six HOUrS in CELL fOr StEALing POwEr 5,000court costs over just 0.003p worth of electricity A film-mAker spoke of his anger today after he was dragged to court twice and locked up for hours for stealing electricity worth 0.003p in a case that could have cost the taxpayer as much as 5,000. mark Guard, 44, says he spent six hours in a cell after nine police officers were called to an aban- doned hostel where he was film- ing. He had switched the electricity on then immediately off again to reset an alarm. He was then charged and faced a prison sentence -- even though he used his experience as a trained electrician to calculate the amount of power used as 0.003 of a penny. The case was finally dropped but he says the two hear- ings could have cost the taxpayer thousands of pounds. He said: i am angry. it has ruined my filming schedule and really disrupted my life. i want to know why i was dragged to court twice and kept in a cell for six hours with the threat of having theft against my name. i still havent been told. if the case had gone to Crown Court it would have cost even more. The father of one had been plan- ning to film squatters for a series of documentaries he had hoped would be shown on TV. As the group entered the build- ing through an open window the alarm went off and mr Guard turned the power in the building on and off to silence it so as not to disturb neighbours. But police arrived within minutes and he was handcuffed and charged with using without due authority a quantity of electricity of a value unknown over the incident on 1 August. mr Guard appeared at Highbury Corner magistrates Court last week, pleaded not guilty and asked for the case to be tried by a Crown Court jury. At his sec- ond hearing yesterday the case was dropped. He said his defence costs ran to 1,200. experts estimate the total cost of hearings, custody and police involvement could have run into just over 5,000.
