Give me a hand! Macabre human butchery shop established in Smithfield Market (but don't worry, it's just a stunt)

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Grim service: The butcher stands behind the counter to serve the gory offerings

Rows of body parts on sale may look like a scene out of a horror film, but they were on offer this weekend at London's famous meat market Smithfield.
But cannibalism is not suddenly legal - the butchers was actually an elaborate publicity stunt, designed to promote the release of the new video game Resident Evil 6.
And although they may have looked eerily realistic, the feet and hands, thigh steaks and racks of ribs were actually fashioned from meat.

Publicity stunt: To promote Resident Evil 6, the company set up the Wesker & Son human butchery at the Smithfield Meat Market in East London

All the proceeds from the human meat sales went to the Limbless Association, a UK charity for amputees and others who have lost limbs.
The elaborate event saw an entire butchers shop recreated complete with human bodies on mortuary tables.
Human limbs were packaged in plastic and placed for sale on the meat counter.
Human hands sold for £5.99, while feet were a bit pricier at £6.00, while thigh steaks were cheapest at £2.99.

Impressive stunt: Meat created to look like a human arm

The pop-up meat shop, going by the name of Wesker & Son, even has a webpage set up and boasts on its biography: 'Fresh meat since 1966.'
A debate on Cannibalism at St. Bartholomew Hospital's Pathology Museum in London was even organised.
The East London shop was only open for two days, but proved a great hit with gamers as well as zombie fans.

Realistic: The meat is eerily realistic in relation to human body parts

Ready for sale: Hands are packaged up and ready to be sold
