Lynn Paul, a nurse from Belfast, had to watch from outside the gates of the city's Roselawn Crematorium as the hearse carrying the remains of her 78-year-old mother, Evelyn McMullen, made its way in. It was 12pm on Tuesday, June 30.

Lynn had been told by an undertaker that, due to Covid-19 restrictions, she would not be allowed to enter the grounds of the council-run crematorium. Yet just before 4pm, some 28 mourners gathered inside Roselawn for the cremation of former IRA leader Bobby Storey.
