The discovery was made on Wednesday during a search by police near Queen Street, Bedworth.

The remains were undergoing forensic testing to determine whether they were human, Warwickshire Police said.

A man and woman from Bedworth were due to appear at Warwickshire Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

The force said it received information relating to a concealment of a birth, reported to have taken place in the county in August 2014.
