Flight cancelled for Pavlova’s ashes
Plans to return the ashes of the legendary Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova to Russia have been cancelled after the Russian Embassy in London withdrew permission.

The London Cremation Company - which has held the dancer's ashes since her death 70 years ago – told BBC News Online that the embassy “did not feel it was the right time to bring the ashes across”.

The remains of the Russian dancer had been booked for a flight to Moscow for reburial on 14 March. It is understood that the request for Miss Pavlova's ashes to be returned had been spearheaded by the Mayor of Moscow, Yuri Luzkhov.

But relatives of the ballerina had been angry at the plans, saying that they were not sanctioned by either the family or by the Russian government (see previous story on GMN News pages).
