Pacemakers recycled to save lives abroad

A British charity has said it wants to start sending pacemakers removed from dead people in the UK to developing countries for re-use.
Around 40,000 people have one of the devices implanted every year in Britain, but many people in poorer countries cannot afford them and die as a result.
