Bristol man delivered tumour sample by mistake

A man who ordered a Kindle electronic book reader received a patient's tumour sample instead, in a courier delivery mix-up.

James Potten said when he opened the FedEx package the box was marked as "patient tumor - specimen enclosed".

The package has now been delivered to the intended recipient, the Royal Free Hospital in London
