I understand that a lot of us are close to our parents, but something about this isn't right.

A police report said: 'In order to rescue the 77-year-old woman, officers called the rescue service which helped to break into the flat.
'In one room on the floor was sitting a woman surrounded by rubbish.
'The pensioner could not walk and needed urgent help.
'An ambulance was called for her.
'Having checked other rooms, police found a mummified body of a woman.' -(Will Stewart, Daily Mail UK)
