Police kept children's body parts without informing parents
Significant body parts from almost 90 children were kept by police often without informing parents, a BBC investigation has found.
A national audit in 2012 found police forces had kept almost 500 body parts from cases dating back to the 1960s.
In one, the brain of a child from Dorset was kept for 13 years. The mother was only told during a visit from police carrying out the audit.
Dorset Police said it would not comment on individual cases.
