Lost voicemail of dead wife: Husband says retrieval 'wonderful'

A husband who thought he had lost a recording of his late wife's voice he had kept for more than 10 years has described the moment the message was recovered as "wonderful".

Stan Beaton, from Mirfield, had kept the voicemail since his wife Ruby's death in 2003, but technical work by Virgin Media meant it was deleted.

However, the telecoms company has now managed to recover the message.

Mr Beaton, 68, said: "They've made this old age pensioner extremely happy."
