FEARS over a lack burial space on the Isle of Wight have been allayed in the wake of national reports of a shortage.
The Isle of Wight Council has stressed older graves will not be reused.
A council spokesman said: "Issues in relation to shortfalls of cemetery space are often more acute in highly populated urban areas, as opposed to largely rural areas such as the Island."
The council said it has space for at least another 30 years and more land can be allocated, if needed.
The spokesman added: "There is also private provision on the Island, which could increase if demand rises."

"""" and more land can be allocated, if needed.""""Not if the policy to cover the Island in roof and road, as so many people here want, there won't be.
