Inside the 'world's largest' blood store

This photo posted on shows a blood bank said to be the largest in the world.

The centre located in Bristol, south west England, stocks more than 1,000 gallons of blood.

It handles 11,500 donations every week, i.e. 850,000 donations a year, making it the largest processing centre in the world.

One hundred hospitals in the south west of England benefit from the centre.

Demand for lifesaving blood is expected to rise over the festive period.
