A helpline has been set up as part of the inquiry into the removal of body organs from nuclear workers.

Michael Redfern QC is looking into 65 reported cases, mainly involving staff employed at Sellafield in Cumbria between 1962 and 1992.

It is believed one case involved a worker from the Springfields site, near Preston.

Mr Redfern was appointed to investigate why samples were taken and whether next of kin were informed.

The helpline is for relatives of workers concerned that organs may have been taken without consent. The number is 0161 837 1554.
