Jay Downing, 48, had a rare condition that meant he was born with one and a half extra kidney pairs.

The three extra kidneys were packed into his left and right abdominal cavities behind the two present in most people.

Mr. Downing wasn’t even aware he had the condition until he went in for an X-Ray.

On discovering the long waiting list in his local area he quickly decided to give three of his kidneys to donors.

The recipients include a mother of five, a 7 year old girl, and one pensioner.

The hospital recently awarded Mr. Downing with a bronze kidney statue as a “tribute to his heroism”.
