Kidney deaths: Expert medic rejected infected organs

The author of a report into the deaths of two men after kidney transplants at the University Hospital of Wales has told an inquest he had turned down the organs when they were offered to his hospital.

Robert "Jim" Stuart and Darren Hughes were given kidneys infected with a parasitic worm in transplants carried out in Cardiff in 2013.

Prof Christopher Watson said no-one could have foreseen the outcome.

But he told Cardiff Coroner's Court he would not have used the kidneys.
