"F**k social distancing" - Youths at funeral kissing

A group of youths were pictured at the funeral of a friend kissing and boozing as they shunned coronavirus lockdown measures.

The group were seen at the wake in an image posted to social media - where some wrote: "F**k yer social distancing'.

Around 30 people drank alcohol – including Buckfast, vodka and MD 2020 – on wasteland in Coatbridge after the funeral of James McKenna, whose cause of death is still being investigated.

One of those in attendance posted an image to Instagram commenting: “Away for a social distance swally way ma bestos probs be in the cells for 4”.

She also posted a photo of the group with the comment: “Rip James” .

One lad planning to attend goaded authorities when he posted “f**k yer social distancing” before later making his account private.

A member of the public, who fears that the group could have put themselves and others at risk, said: “Some of these individuals have lost friends and family to the virus and others are single mothers.

“One remarked ‘f**k yer social distancing’.”

Announcing the funeral plans for James, his family had requested people wishing to pay their respects should observe social distancing measures during a farewell procession on Friday ahead of Saturday’s ceremony.

Social distancing has seen many families unable to properly say their goodbyes to loved ones at funerals.
