TRAGIC DEATH 'MAY BE A JOKE' Company apologises as grieving Valleys woman is outraged.
A GRIEVING Valleys woman was left outraged after mobile phone giant Orange told her that her boyfriend's tragic death could be part of a practical joke to save money.
Byron Jeffries was killed in a motorcycle accident, but a call centre worker said that until Deborah Thomas formally proved he was dead, she could not cancel his phone contract.
The firm said her call could be a prank, but she said: 'I wish it was a practical joke. Then my son would still have a father.'
Now one of the firm's senior members of staff will be giving Ms Thomas - who is still too heartbroken to speak publicly - a full apology.
