Son lost da's ashes in Tesco bag for life after farewell trip to Southend Pier turned into pub crawl

A shame-faced son has appealed for help in finding his dad’s ashes which he lost in a Tesco bag for life after ‘one last trip to the beach’ turned into nine-hour pub crawl.

Stan Blade, 39, planned to make a TikTok video himself of visiting pleasure rides at Southend Pier, Essex, with dad Stephen Jewitt’s ashes as a final farewell.

Sometime during the crawl, on which he downed six cans of Stella and five pints of lager, Stan misplaced the shopping bag containing a wooden casket which held the ashes of his dad who died aged 60.

He only discovered his blunder after finally arriving home just after midnight on March 18 having drunk six tins of Stella and five pints of lager in a couple of pubs.

He confessed to his irate step-mum Emma Hopkins who had previously told him he could not take the ashes out of her home.

Musician Stan said: ‘I came home, and my stepmum asked ‘where is your dad?’

‘She was not pleased with me at all and I do not blame her.’

He added: ‘My dad was a really funny bloke and he would have absolutely loved the idea of me riding a roller coaster with his ashes by my side.
