Final send off of human skeleton used as teaching aid

A human skeleton used as a teaching aid at a school for four decades has been laid to rest.

The remains, nicknamed Arthur, was in storage at Haydock High School, near St Helens, before being found by a staff member.

After being sent for forensic tests, it was discovered the skeleton was about 100 years old and probably came from the Indian sub-continent.
