Tests are being carried out on human remains washed up by a storm-battered Pembrokeshire beach.

The discovery of what appears to be a jaw bone, with some teeth still intact, was made at Amroth on Sunday February 2.

Martin Johnson of Templeton had walked past the bridge at the end of the beach when he made the find.

"Amongst the debris we found what looks like a man's jaw," he said.

Dyfed-Powys police are now investigating the discovery of the remains, which are understood to include further bones.

Said Inspector Carl Roach: "I can confirm that human remains have been found at Amroth.

"Enquiries are ongoing to try and establish who they belong to. At the moment, we are keeping an open mind."

No doubt carbon dating will soon tell the age of the bones.
And if they are more recent, hopefully DNA might solve the mystery.
