Grieving parents were devastated after being barred from putting Winnie the Pooh on their baby's gravestone by cartoon giant Disney.

The distraught family wanted the popular children's character on the headstone as a touching tribute to their stillborn child.

But Disney refused to grant the Clacton parents' request, claiming it would breach their copyright.

Now, after being contacted by the Evening Gazette, a spokesman for the company has said the company may try to help with the request.

Disney says it is now reviewing its previous decision and may give the family the go-ahead.
