A Romanian man was left furious when the coffin he'd bought couldn't fit his deceased relative's shoes in.

The man, from Piatra Neamt, lodged an official complaint saying it was too small as the lid wouldn't shut.

The man, who has not been named, said: "It was a real shock for me and my family when, in front of all the mourners, we could not close the coffin because the shoes wouldn't fit.

"We couldn't bury our relative bare-footed so we had to try harder but you can imagine how embarrassing and disrespectful that felt."
