A record number of people have donated organs after death in the UK, health officials announced.
Last year organs were taken from 1,323 people who died - a 13.7% rise on the previous year, NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) said.
The organs were given to 3,500 people, a spokeswoman for the body, which is responsible for organ donations in the health service, said.
The figures for 2013 also show that 58.6% of bereaved families who were asked to donate their loved one's organs did so - a rise from 56.5% the previous year.
