Human remains found on UK queen's estate

Posted:

LONDON (AP) -- British police say that they've found human remains on the Sandringham estate, a vast area in rural Norfolk where the royal family retreats for the holiday season.

A terse statement posted to the website of the Norfolk Constabulary said that a member of the public found the remains in an area of woodland at Anmer, a tiny village about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of London.

Britain's Press Association news agency identified Anmer as being part of the estate, which stretches over several thousand acres.

Police said the remains were found on New Year's Day.

No indication of the age or nature of the remains was given, and when contacted by The Associated Press late Monday police said no further information would be released until Tuesday.
