You couldnt make it up
An estate agent showed prospective buyers around an Â£800,000 house while the owner lay dead on her sofa, an inquest heard yesterday. The agent, Samuel Allfort, said he had assumed the 55-year-old woman was sleeping and continued with the pre-arranged viewing. The Marsh & Parsons employee even left the living room to view last in case she awoke in time to meet the buyers.
