‘Grandmother’s text messages from beyond’

Members of a family in Britain were shocked to receive text messages apparently from their dead grandmother, who had been buried with her mobile phone three years earlier.

Since her grandmother Lesley’s death, Sheri Emerson, 22, had been sending messages to her phone to help comfort her. The family had buried the 59-year-old with some of her favourite possessions, including her phone, and thought operator O2 had terminated the number.

But Emerson, from South Shields, South Tyneside, was left in shock when a reply flashed up on her phone, saying: “I’m watching over you and it’s all going to get better. Just push through.” Her uncle, Graham Emerson, eventually rang the number and discovered it was a man who had been using the recycled number for a few weeks. (PA)
