Human feet found in park are 'medical exhibit'

Human feet found within a few hundred yards of each other in Bath are "more than likely a medical exhibit".

The three feet were discovered in Weston Park East in February, July and August this year.

Police were initially baffled by the discoveries, but have now concluded no crime had been committed in each of the three cases.

Police carried out detailed forensic tests on the feet, while they were also examined by a Home Office pathologist and a forensic anthropologist.

Officers also spoke with local educational and health care providers, as well as the council.

We have carried out an extensive investigation into all three feet and have exhausted all active lines of enquiry pending any new information.

We are satisfied that no crime has been committed and that the feet are more than likely an exhibit from a medical or educational establishment or from a private collection which has been disturbed by animals.
