(SHIELDS GAZETTE) — A DEVASTATED South Tyneside woman was left horrified after receiving a text message from beyond the grave.
Sheri Emerson was stunned when her mobile flashed up with a message from her gran Lesley Emerson, who died in June 2011.
The 59-year-old was buried in Harton Cemetery, South Shields, with her favourite things – including her mobile phone – after she lost her battle with bowel cancer.

Over the last three years, Sheri, her father John Emerson, 42, and her uncle Graham Emerson, 29, have sent messages to Lesley’s mobile for comfort, after they say phone company 02 promised the number would be terminated forever.
However, last week, Sheri received a reply.
