Healthcare Environmental Services in Longbenton, North Tyneside, built up stockpiles of body parts and other medical waste and was ordered to dispose of the stored material. It went into liquidation but after a suspected burglary it was found the body parts were still there nine months after it closed.
It is alleged in the local papers that body parts still remain at the “abandoned” North Tyneside site at the heart of a human waste scandal – almost a year after Chronicle live broke the original story.
And the shocking findings emerged after two men were accused of burgling the premises last week.
Healthcare Environmental Services (HES) Ltd built up stockpiles of body parts and other medical waste and was ordered to dispose of the stored material.
It was reported to have allowed amputated limbs, infectious liquids, material linked to cancer treatment and hazardous pharmaceutical waste to build up in huge stockpiles.
It’s perhaps a good story, but is surely tainted with massive exaggeration!
And still, we ask the question, what are the Environment Agency doing about this, and how on earth did they let the situation develop in the first place?
