“A heartbroken mum is preparing to bury her daughter for a second time after getting her final remains some 26 years after her death.

Rita Kavanagh, from Ballymun in Dublin, lost her baby Jessica when she was just six months old – on December 18, 1996.

She learned three years later that Temple Street Children’s Hospital had “cut her up” and kept some of her child’s organs – but not her brain.”
