Arrest in Pelsall hunt for human remains

Police investigating a garden where a human foetus is thought to have been found have arrested a 23-year-old man.

The man and a 29-year-old woman were arrested in connection with the inquiry in Pelsall, West Midlands, and have since been released on bail.

Police said forensic archaeologists made the discovery late on Wednesday and the remains have been sent for further tests.

The discovery was made as a result of information, a police spokesman said.

Police said it is understood the information relates to potentially historic incidents.

An excavation team is still working in the garden, in Huddocks View, and house-to-house inquiries are being carried out.
