Update: Police say ‘bones are not ancient’ after human remains found in Nottinghamshire

Officers were called to Coxmoor Road just before 7 pm on Wednesday 26 April.

A member of the public came across what they suspected to be human remains and called the police. Specialist officers are at the scene conducting a full investigation.

Superintendent Claire Rukas of Nottinghamshire Police said:

‘Specialist officers are currently at the scene and will remain there for the next seven days as we work to find out who this person is, how they died, when they died and how they came to be at this location.

‘They are being supported in this work by forensic scientists and an anthropologist that will help us to determine the age of the bones, what we can say at this time is that they are not ancient bones.
