Shocked woman claims "terrible" warning photo plastered on cigarette packets around world is her dead DAD





A shocked woman claims a "terrible" warning photo plastered on cigarette packets around the world is of her dead father.
Mum-of-two Jodi Charles, 42, was horrified when her 14-year-old daughter picked up the wrapper and recognised her 'granddad' on her mum's friend's packet of Amber Leaf tobacco.
Jodi said she has been left feeling "distraught" and that it has been a "distressing" time for the whole family.
She said she is "110 per cent" sure the photo is of her dad David Ross, who passed away in 2015 aged 66 and would "no way" have given his consent.
Though he was a smoker, the former ambulance driver died of unrelated bone marrow problems, septicaemia and lymphoma, a type of blood cancer.
He spent 10 months at Basildon University Hospital, Essex, after being admitted in 2014 and was on life support in intensive care on three occasions.
odi claims that's when someone must have taken the photo, which shows a man lying unconscious in a hospital bed with a breathing tube in his mouth.
The hospital denies this and the EU Commission claims the image is of someone else, but Jodi says she is yet to receive proof of that.
The picture is one of 42 gory health warning images used on all cigarette and tobacco sold in the UK. They are required by EU law in a bid to cut smoking.
