The skeletons of what are believed to be at least two French soldiers, captured during the Napoleonic War, have been discovered in a back garden in Hampshire.

The Walling family stumbled upon the remains while an extension was being built at their Fareham home.

Experts say the remains are that of two or three "well built" males.

The new-build property is near Portchester Castle where thousands of French prisoners of war were incarcerated in the early 19th Century.
