Grisly Bones Discovery
Talking of lovely local photographers sending me curious things, here’s an oddity from Blackheathen which has left me puzzled indeed.
Walking along the path by the Old Royal Naval College on Saturday, he saw police raking around on the shore, collecting a large quantity of dodgy-looking bones, after a tip-off from beachcombers. Apparently they are probably not human, (the bones, dummy, not the beachcombers…) though they’ve been carted off to the labs for checking anyway, and had probably been in the river for some time (also not the totters…)
Blackheathen tells me
“Police have yet to confirm if their investigation will lead to any prosecutions but local residents commended the prompt response by authorities in brightening up an otherwise dull afternoon…”
