Nearly 150 baby ashes families seeking compensation
Law firm Thompsons now represents 143 families, up from 21 since December last year.
Nearly 150 families are seeking compensation over the baby ashes scandal in Aberdeen.
Law firm Thompsons now represents 143 families, up from 21 since the council announced plans to compensate parents in December.
The deadline for families to apply closes at 5pm on Wednesday.
A national inquiry uncovered evidence babies were cremated alongside adults in Aberdeen for years, a practice described as "unethical and abhorrent".
It followed revelations about Mortonhall Crematorium in Edinburgh, where staff secretly buried the ashes of babies.
The national review, led by former lord advocate Dame Elish Angiolini, examined 200 cases at 14 crematoria.
It said the "most serious issues" uncovered were at Aberdeen Crematorium and called the actions of staff "deeply disturbing".
The inquiry also raised fresh concerns about crematoriums in Glasgow, Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy.
