Britain's Daily Mail quoted Susan Jones, from the Willow Burn Hospice, in nearby Lanchester as saying: "There must be somewhere else they could put it that would have shown a degree of insight and sensitivity."

A spokesperson for the funeral home said that they had been assured that none of the ads placed on the side of their building would be offensive.

The company responsible for placing the ad, Clearchannel Advertising, said in a statement: "We apologize for any offense caused by the unfortunate juxtaposition of this ad. It was certainly not intended. We have arranged to have it moved right away."
