Humberside Police are investigating what is believed to be human remains found at Welton Waters in Welton.

A member of the public is thought to have made the discovery at the beauty spot at about 2:20pm on Thursday 23 February.

Humberside Police raced to the scene and a police helicopter was scrambled whislt an underwater diving team was sent out to search the surrounding area.

Yesterday evening, Humberside Police confirmed they had been called in after the remains were found.

A police spokeswoman said to the Hull Daily Mail: "We got a call about 2.20pm after a member of the public found some sort of remains in Welton Waters.

"The remains have been removed and will be taken away for examination."

She said police were not treating the discovery as suspicious.

Denise Hillary who regularly walks her dogs around the scenic area said: "A long time ago people used to live near the site so who's to say more remains won't be found? It is a shock though because I used to play around the area when I was little and it is strange to think the remains could have been amongst us whilst we were playing".

One man who wished not to be named was shocked by the news: "It is not something you expect to hear about every day and especially in such a beautiful area like Welton Waters. I just hope the police get to the bottom of it all and if it is human remains I hope that some closure can be found for who's ever they are".

Danielle Jade was also shocked to discover the news but said "you never imagine remains would be found in such a nice area it just proves though that something like this can happen anywhere. Well done to the police for their quick response".

Deidre Ashton, who lives in Brough, commented on the news: "My first thought is of families with missing loved ones. Every time anything like this happens, they must be reliving their nightmare, wondering if this is the news they have been dreading. My second thought is that this may be the remains of someone who lived in this area many many years ago. I hope it does not turn out to be something very nasty".
