CT scan unravels mummy's secrets
Experts have carried out a CT scan on an ancient Egyptian mummy in a bid to unravel its secrets.

Radiographers at University College Hospital carried out a whole-body computerised tomography on the 3,000-year-old body on Sunday.

Nesperennub, a male priest, is enclosed in a linen and plaster case within a one and a half metre-long coffin.
