    Scientists have created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories.

    The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three years by researchers looking into possible cures for a wide range of diseases.

    The revelation comes just a day after a committee of scientists warned of a nightmare ‘Planet of the Apes’ scenario in which work on human-animal creations goes too far.

    Last night a campaigner against the excesses of medical research said he was disgusted that scientists were ‘dabbling in the grotesque’.

    Figures seen by the Daily Mail show that 155 ‘admixed’ embryos, containing both human and animal genetic material, have been created since the introduction of the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act.

    This legalised the creation of a variety of hybrids, including an animal egg fertilised by a human sperm; ‘cybrids’, in which a human nucleus is implanted into an animal cell; and ‘chimeras’, in which human cells are mixed with animal embryos.

    Scientists say the techniques can be used to develop embryonic stem cells which can be used to treat a range of incurable illnesses.

    Three labs in the UK – at King’s College London, Newcastle University and Warwick University – were granted licences to carry out the research after the Act came into force.

    All have now stopped creating hybrid embryos due to a lack of funding, but scientists believe that there will be more such work in the future.

    The figure was revealed to crossbench peer Lord Alton following a Parliamentary question.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    It'll be okay as long as they remember the law: "Not to walk on all fours! That is the law! Are we not men?"

    Anyone who has been married knows that crossing a woman with a shark is redundant. :D
