NGA quoted in The Times – Hey miss superstar: they’re my embryos too

The Times has reported the case of US actress Sofia Vergara, who is in a dispute with her ex-partner Nick Loeb, about whether he should be able to use their stored embryos. 

Quoting NGA as leading experts in UK fertility law, the article says:

UK law is more precise. Natalie Gamble, a leading fertility lawyer, says Loeb’s situation could never arise here: “Under UK law embryos can only continue to be stored, or used to conceive a child, if both the egg and the sperm provider consent in writing. If a couple separates, either partner can give notice to the clinic asking for their embryos to be destroyed, and neither can use the embryos to conceive a child without the other’s agreement.”
