Body parts found at recycling plant

Police are investigating the apparent discovery of body parts at a recycling plant

Suspected body parts of a man have been found at a recycling plant.

Avon and Somerset Police officers were called to the plant in Avonmouth, Bristol, after workers made the gruesome discovery.

The area was cordoned off and police have launched an investigation into the find.

A police spokeswoman said: "We were called at around 11am at Avonmouth.

"Employees at the site were concerned at what they thought were remains at one of the units.

"We cordoned the site off and are continuing our inquiries. I can confirm that it is believed to be a body of a man."

She said it was too early to say how long the body parts had been dismembered or who they belonged to.
