Press/Media: Expert Comment


Forensic experts are looking for volunteers to donate their corpses to rot away on Britain's first body farm.


Dr Anna Williams, an anthropologist at the University of Huddersfield, says the move would improve forensic science work in the UK.

She is now in talks with the Human Tissue Authority, while the Home Office said its officials are “considering” the idea.

“The benefits to science would help us in a number of ways,” she said.
