He went on to say that his wife challenged the graveyard BBQ party, but to little avail.

The man, who wished to remain anonymous, added: "My wife remonstrated with the men. The 'Chef' patronisingly said 'Thank you for you input, I've taken note.'

"So I took a photograph! Over trots the guy in blue and demands I delete the photographs.

"In any case I was taking photos of him barbecuing on a tomb in sacred ground!"
