Coronavirus: Brothers die on same day in Newport

The brothers were buried next to one another at St Woolos cemetery close to their father’s grave, although only a few members could attend due to coronavirus restrictions.

Rukhsar Abbass, daughter of Ghulam Abbass, said: “I didn’t realise how much of a well-known family we had, and how much of an impact my father and his brother had on the community, until now.

“We’ve had so many messages of support from members of the community and further afield, and even MPs have contacted us to send their condolences.

“It shows the kind of men they were. We’re all so proud of them and are totally heartbroken.”
