Hundreds of tonnes of human body parts and medical waste continues to increase after a disposal company working for the NHS struggles to incinerate it.

The Government confirmed the waste had not been properly disposed of by Healthcare Environmental Services.

The anatomical waste is stored on sites in secure and refrigerated containers.

The contractor removes the waste from a significant number, but not all, hospitals in England and Scotland.
