An art student has sparked outrage with a show of puppets made with dentures and glass eyes from dead people.

Karah Benford, 20, is exhibiting the dolls, entitled Death Threads, at The Ultraviolet Contemporary Art Gallery in Southsea, Portsmouth.

A vicar at Portsmouth Cathedral has branded the show “gratuitous”, while a local councillor called it “sickening”.

Ms Benford, who is studying a Fine Art degree at Portsmouth University, designed each of the patchwork puppets with its own character and name, including Mr Finlay Ruffian and Dolly Dollar.
