A number of bones have been seized by police after a member of the public tried to dispose of them at a Sudbury recycling centre.
Police were called to the recycling centre in Sandy Lane on Saturday afternoon, October 24, after receiving reports a member of the public had attempted to dispose of the bones.
It is understood the bones had been used for medical purposes, and are therefore not being treated as suspicious by Suffolk Constabulary following their enquiries.
A police spokeswoman said the bones, which were stamped and contained within a box, are not being linked to the discovery of bones in the River Stour earlier this year.
She added the bones have been recovered by police for “medical purposes”.
