A SON took his mother’s dead body on a 30-mile bus journey after she died as they enjoyed a day out together.

The 52-year-old man, who is thought to have learning difficulties, wanted to get his 88-year-old mother home when she passed away suddenly on a trip to Lancaster.

The woman, who has not been identified, is believed to have died on the bus on the journey back from Lancaster to Preston.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: “She died when they were on a day out.

“He did not know what to do. He wanted to just get his mother home. It is just very tragic.

“We spoke to a number of people at the time. This man has lost his mother and was struggling to know how to deal with it.”
