Police are investigating the discovery of a human head in a quarry in Cambridgeshire.

It was found in the small village of Mepal, near Ely, by a staff member at the quarry on Monday afternoon.

It is believed the head - which has not been identified as male or female - was found in a skip.

Police have yet to learn how long it had been there but reports say it may be been some time.

They stressed it was a human head that was found, not a skull.

A spokeswoman for Cambridgeshire Police said: "We were called at about 3pm yesterday afternoon with reports of the discovery of a human head at a quarry in Mepal.

"Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit are conducting enquiries, both locally and across the county borders."

A spokesman for Mick George Ltd, the company that runs the quarry, said: "We are working closely with the police and providing them with all the information they need to undertake their investigations.

"At this point we cannot provide any further comments."
