Wider Image: A Lonely Death
A worker for a special cleaning, sweeps tatami flooring mats at a flat in Tokyo March 20, 2015 where a body of an 85 year-old man was left over a month. Specialist clean-up crews are on hand to cleanse "lonely death" apartments once their passing is spotted, including placing incense and flowers. In March, the body of a man in his 80s was found on the floor of his apartment in Tokyo. He had been dead for a month. The family didn't visit and the only reason for the body's discovery was the slight smell that troubled the downstairs neighbour. In a country where around 5 million elderly people live alone, the number of decaying bodies found in empty homes is expected to soar. REUTERS/Toru Hanai TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY
