Police are investigating after a member of the public found human remains in a field in Worcestershire.
The West Mercia force says it is treating the death as unexplained.
Officers responded to a call after the discovery this morning off Egg Hill Lane in Frankley – on the southwestern fringes of Birmingham.
The road has been temporarily closed while police carry out inquiries.
Detective Inspector Mark Walters said: “We are in the very early stages of an investigation and our enquiries are just getting under way.
“We are currently treating this as an unexplained death and no identification has yet been made. While this could be a lengthy process we will update the public in due course.”
