Mortonhall Crematorium investigation

An investigation has been launched into the disposal of deceased babies' ashes at Mortonhall Crematorium in Edinburgh between 1960 and 2011, following the discovery that they had been buried in a Garden of Remembrance without their parents' knowledge. The BBC has the story at www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-21147676, with STV also providing coverage on the original story at http://local.stv.tv/edinburgh/209373-mortonhall-police-called-in-to-investigate-the-crematorium/.
