Police Confirm Bembridge Beach Discovery 'Not Human Remains' Despite Reports To Contrary

Police have confirmed that bones found on an Isle of Wight beach are not human remains - despite earlier local media headlines to the contrary.

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary were contacted by a member of the public about the discovery of possible human remains on a beach in Bembridge just before 7:40pm on Saturday (13 April).

It was reported that those were human remains, although this has proven inaccurate following further investigation.

A spokesperson for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary confirmed:

"We have now received confirmation from Home Office pathologists that the discovery is not human remains.

"The investigation has now concluded."
