Ms Slader said:”I actually struggled with why I was OK, why I had been living to get this second chance and they did not get that”

She clarified it was also important for her to determine the families of individuals who died were”given support and help, since they needed it the most”.

Ms Slader said the picture of funeral directors as an”older guy, the top coat, the wonderful lawsuit” is”shifting a lot”.

She explained:”You would think coping with death all of the time would mean I would be in pretty good stead with losing someone.

“And being badly, I have lost a great deal of people that way also, but I was not expecting it to hit me as hard as it did.

“I could not function correctly, I was mad and angry, I wanted an outlet.”

Ms Slader discovered local soccer team Plymstock Albion Oaks and flipped up in a training session understanding no-one there rather than having played the game before.
