A woman has visited her own heart at a museum 16 years after it was removed during life-saving transplant surgery.

Jennifer Sutton, from Ringwood in Hampshire, said it was “incredibly surreal” to see the organ as an exhibit at London’s Hunterian Museum.

The 38-year-old said she hoped it would help promote organ donation, describing it as “the greatest gift possible”.

She told the BBC she now led a busy, active life and plans to “keep myself going for as long as possible”.
