An investigation was launched by detectives over the disappearance of a baby born in Barnet in 2004.

During a search of a property in Fryent Crescent, Hendon, human remains – believed to be that of a child – were found.

A post-mortem could not establish the cause of death, with further tests which could take weeks to be carried out.

A 50-year-old woman and a 52-year-old man arrested on suspicion of preventing a lawful and decent burial have been bailed until July.
