Lancashire Fusilier war hero's grave saved after plea





The Spanish grave of a British World War I hero has been saved after an appeal to trace his relatives.

Authorities were threatening to exhume the body of Sir Gilbert Mackereth, who is buried in a San Sebastian cemetery, because of unpaid taxes on the plot.

The Sun newspaper has paid the 330 euro (£287) tax owed on the plot.
