A fire at a crematorium forced a string of funerals to be cancelled today.
Emergency crews were called to Margam Crematorium, near Port Talbot, Gwent, in the early hours after the main building’s roof caught fire.

A spokeswoman added: “Families are being contacted by their funeral directors regarding alternative arrangements.”
Mid West and Wales Fire Service said appliances from Port Talbot, Neath and Kenfig Hill attended the incident.
