Readers of this blog may be unaware that unrelated concerns have been raised about the competence or otherwise of Dr. Nicholas Hunt: New questions over Dr Kelly's post-mortem after pathologist 'mixed up' two servicemen's remains.
Presently, I know no more than is in the Daily Mail report.
In the context of the death of David Kelly I find it interesting that the weight was wrong in the Sheffield case. One reason that that is potentially important in the David Kelly case is that the estimate of time of death depends on the weight.
I notice, too, that in the Sheffield case Dr. Hunt is said to have issued multiple reports before the information was "correct".
Does anyone know if the assertion in the article that Dr. Hunt is responsible for carrying out the postmortems on servicemen from Iraq and Afghanistan is factually accurate or not? It seems to me to be inherently unlikely but it would be interesting to know if Dr. Hunt has had "exclusive" responsibility for that and for what period(s) of time.
