Bags of bones found in a river in Suffolk are believed to be human remains, police have said.

They were discovered on Thursday afternoon in the River Stour between Meadow Gates and Croft Bridge in Sudbury, Suffolk.

Police have launched an investigation into the finding after being called to the river at around 4.35pm.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: “Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity close to the river, where a submerged shopping trolley and the bags containing the bones were discovered nearby.

“Alternatively, anyone who has seen the bags in the river or knows how they came to be in the water or who uses the route regularly is asked to come forward with any relevant information.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
