Body parts families will be 'devastated'

The sister of a man who was buried without his brain which had been kept by police has said families will be "devastated" that other forces have retained body parts.

An audit by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) revealed organs such as brains, hearts and limbs had been kept.

Anne Bundy's brother, Nigel Evans, died in Bristol in 2003. After he was buried his family discovered that his brain had been kept by police without their knowledge.

Ms Bundy said families would find the news from the Acpo report "upsetting".
