Several British hospitals have been exposed as involved in a body organs’ scandal in which NHS hospitals have kept hundreds of dead people’s body parts without relatives’ permission for up to 20 years.


The stolen organs include brains and other vital parts of the dead bodies, an investigation by The Sun revealed.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London are now contacting relatives of the deceased from across Britain telling them that they can take back the organs that could repeat the gruesome 1990’s scandal in Bristol and Liverpool that led to second funerals.

The scandal is especially embarrassing for the government because the organs had been unlawfully removed from the bodies under police or coroners’ authorization to be stored for tests at forensic medicine department of King’s College, London.

The body parts are being returned now because they were no longer needed since 2000, when the department was closed down.

Some of the family members of the dead people robbed of their body parts have pledged to sue authorities over the scandal.
