A HOS­PI­TAL has a back­log of vol­un­teers queu­ing up to make a dona­tion – af­ter bosses of­fered £ 44 for ev­ery poo sam­ple.

Doc­tors at Hôpi­tal Saint- An­toine, in Paris, will use the stools for re­search into bowel dis­ease.

Af­ter an ad­vert of­fer­ing cash per sam­ple, a hos­pi­tal helpline has since be­come bunged- up with in­quiries.

Hos­pi­tal chiefs said: “The tele­phone num­ber given on the ap­peal has been to­tally over­loaded. Merde!”
