The remains of 13 Indigenous people were handed back to Aboriginal leaders at a ceremony at Australia House in London overnight.

Cambridge University and the University of Birmingham were among the institutions that returned remains as part of a repatriation process.

However, some institutions like the British Museum continue to defy the wishes of indigenous people by refusing to return ancestral remains.
