The breasts are a cheaper alternative to latex models

A hospital which appealed for volunteers to knit fake breasts has had offers from across the world.

The woolly breasts are used by Liverpool Women's Hospital to show new mothers how to breastfeed and how to express milk.

Kate McFadden, infant feeding co-coordinator, said the response to its appeal has been "amazing".

The knitting pattern for the breasts is being made available online for volunteers to download.

The breasts are produced in a variety of skin shades and are cheaper than sourcing latex models, which cost around £35 each.
