Hundreds attend joint funeral

MORE than 400 mourners attended the joint funeral of popular Northern Co-operative Meat Company workers Robert Needham and Warren Endres in Casino today.

The inseparable mates lost their lives late last month when the car they were travelling to work in collided with another on the Summerland Way at Leeville.

The meatworks closed for the day out of respect.  Meatworks management said they would be financially assisting the men's families.
