An advertising company has apologised after placing a billboard for The Walking Dead next to a funeral parlour.

The poster for the zombie drama, which is currently airing in the UK on Channel 5, was placed on the side of The Co-operative Funeralcare in Consett, County Durham.

The Daily Mail reports that The Co-operative Funeralcare is unhappy that the Consett branch was not told about the plans before the advertisement was posted.

"It is disappointing that we were not consulted as this advert could cause unnecessary distress," a spokesperson said. "When the billboard site was erected, we were assured that no insensitive adverts would be featured."

Clear Channel, the advertising company behind the poster, has now agreed to replace it with a different billboard.

"Clear Channel apologises for any offence caused by the unfortunate juxtaposition of this advertisement, which was certainly not intended," a spokesperson said. "We arranged to have it removed right away and it has since come down."

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Channel 5 said: "No offence was intended and this particular poster has been removed from the side of the funeral parlour in Durham. We apologise for any offence caused."
