A man found a stranger's ashes buried in his back garden 46 years after moving in.
Bill Stephenson, 70 - a retired hospital telephonist - discovered the remains of someone who died in 2008, but has no idea how they got there.
He said: "It's frightened the life out of all of us - but how it's got buried in the garden nobody knows.
"Why would somebody bury their relative's remains in a stranger's garden? Why not just scatter them?
"I have no knowledge of him whatsoever. We have been looking at the deeds of the houses on the street and there's nothing there."
