Police are searching the garden of a Liverpool home after reports that bones have been found.

Police received a report on Tuesday of bones being found "several years ago" at the property in Stalisfield Avenue, Norris Green.

A 50-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of preventing the lawful and decent burial of a body.

Merseyside Police said work was under way "to locate these bones and to establish if they are animal or human".

The force said the investigation was at an early stage and the woman had been released on bail.
