A post-mortem examination into human remains found on a motorway embankment in Shropshire has proven inconclusive.

West Mercia Police said further tests had now been ordered on skeletal remains including a skull which were discovered near a roundabout on junction 4 of the M54 last week.

The skull was found during routine survey work on August 20 near Telford, leading to a closure while the scene was investigated.

Searches at the site ended on Sunday, with lab tests showing the remains had been at the scene for more than two years.

Police have said they are keeping an open mind as to how the remains, identified as male, had come to be there.

"We are still open-minded as to how this individual happened to be at this location, and we are continuing to pursue a number of inquiries to identify the man and establish what has happened.

"Further forensic inquiries will take a number of weeks but we will continue to keep the public updated on any developments."
