Mortuary ID agony family get apology.

Byline: LAURA PATERSON reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

THE family of a man who died in an accident have had an apology from the Scottish Government after they had to identify his body in a "derelict" mortuary.

Frank Whyte's relatives are trying to get mortuaries improved after being left "desolate" by the condition of Spynie mortuary in Moray.

Frank, 69, died after his yacht overturned in Findhorn Bay in May.

Public health minister Aileen Campbell apologised to his widow Maryan yesterday and said mortuary provision would be reviewed.

Moray MSP Richard Lochhead has called for mortuary inspections to be held to stop other families suffering the same trauma.

The use of Spynie mortuary for identifications has been scrapped since Frank's family launched their campaign.
