Sev­ered head find at quarry

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A SEV­ERED hu­man head has been found in a quarry by a hor­ri­fied worker, po­lice have con­firmed.

An em­ployee at the site in Mepal, Cambs, made the shock dis­cov­ery on Mon­day af­ter­noon and of­fi­cers from the re­gion’s ma­jor crime unit have launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Po­lice are try­ing to es­tab­lish how long the re­mains have been there.

A spokes­woman for Cam­bridgeshire Po­lice said: “Of­fi­cers from the Bed­ford­shire, Cam­bridgeshire and Hert­ford­shire Ma­jor Crime Unit are con­duct­ing en­quiries, both lo­cally and across the bor­ders.

“At this stage we do not know if the head is male or fe­male, how­ever we have got of­fi­cers car­ry­ing out searches at a site in Sharn­brook, Beds, as we be­lieve this is where the re­mains may have come from.”
