Human remains discovered at a depot in Avonmouth in Bristol may have got there after being chucked in with a recycling collection in Swindon, police have said. Detectives are now focusing their inquiries in the town.
A police cordon remains in place at the recycling plant where the body parts were discovered yesterday morning by workers.
Senior investigating officer Gareth Bevan, said: "Police enquiries so far suggest the body was transported with commercial recycling waste collected in Swindon and therefore the focus of the investigation will be in that area. The investigation is at an early stage and we are keeping an open mind about the circumstances leading to this man's death."
The victim has yet to be identified.
