INTRUDERS have been slammed for ‘mocking the dead’ after breaking into a former chapel of rest in a disused hospital.

The ‘urban explorers’ entered Rossendale Hospital and took pictures of themselves inside the mortuary.
From the Lancashire Telegraph

Cheers to TranKmasT for the link

Ha, what a load of tripe as usual by the LT. Forever spooning out shite to the citizens of Lancashire.

"And police have warned anyone caught will be prosecuted "

Prosecuted with what, exactly?

Urban explorers? By that of course you mean filthy unemployed, unwashed, hippy, mother earth loving frosty jack swilling, non tax paying, bonged up, crusty cave dwellers.
Jesus, if that's real we need to market ourselves better...

You're right it doesn't matter, except for the small-time paper and small-minded people of Rossendale.

i love a news article thanks for posting

i like some of the comments on the website aswell


"Is it anymore disrespectful than turning churches into pubs / nightclubs resturants or even fireplace warehouses. I am not condoning in any way what they did. In recent times burial sites have been cleared of the dead to make way for new build houses & industrial units was that not just as disrespectful."

"I fail to see how they were 'mocking the dead' because there was no dead people in the disused hospital morgue. Whether they should have been there or not is another point, but this story is pure sensationalism with a few rent-a-quotes thrown in for added measure. Good publicity for the Urban Explorers website, tho."

"Prosecution for what ? Going into a derelict building owned by people who couldn't even keep the lead on the roof"

sorry to any other explorers who wont now get to visit this place because of probable hightened security.

I'm at work at the moment, but if you pm me an email, I'll send you the defence you can expect from the LT 'legal department'

Thanks Dr Howser but it was tongue in cheek and probably wont be asking for payment for my picture:)

Spoke to Maybenot 1330 before and told him about him being in a Lancashire online paper and that we were called bonged up and unwashed.,,.he is at the download festival and he said that the description is mostly correct :D
