HULL - Scientists have discovered microplastics in live human lungs for the first time. The particles, which included synthetic fibres from clothing, were found in almost all samples analysed.

Researchers from the University of Hull and Hull York Medical School also found microplastics in the deepest section of the lung, which was previously thought to be impossible due to the narrow airways.

Microplastics have previously been found in human cadaver autopsy samples, but this is the first study to show them in lungs from live people.
