Human body parts have been found at a recycling plant in Bristol.
Workers discovered the remains of the male victim at the plant in Avonmouth, Bristol yesterday morning.
The area remains cordoned off while officers carry out investigations at the scene.
Police said it was too early to say how long the body parts had been dismembered.
"Employees at the site were concerned at what they thought were remains at one of the units," a Somerset police spokesperson said.
"We cordoned the site off and are continuing our inquiries. I can confirm that it is believed to be a body of a man."
