A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Police said:

“Police are working with other agencies, including a forensic archaeologist, following the discovery of suspected human bones at a remote location near Chop Gate. “Although it is too early to say precisely how old these bones are, current forensic investigations suggest that they are not recent, and are likely to be several decades old. Specialists are being used to recover and examine them. “We’d ask people not to speculate online about the nature of the bones while this process is underway.”
