Possible human remains washed up on a Somerset beach last night (Monday).

Police were called to Warren Road, in Brean, at 6.40pm after an item, which Avon and Somerset Constabulary believes may be human remains, washed up on the beach.

A spokesman said: “The matter has been referred to the coroner and we are carrying out enquiries on behalf of the coroner to determine the nature of the item.”

Part of the beach was closed by the police while officers investigated the scene, but it has now reopened.
