Bones found in garden during army grenade operation

An investigation was launched after bones were found buried in a garden during an operation to deal with an unexploded grenade.

Police were called in when Army explosives experts made the discovery after dismantling a grenade found underneath a shed in west Cumbria.

The bomb disposal unit was carrying out a precautionary safety sweep of the land in Ennerdale Road, Cleator Moor, when they came across the buried bones on Sunday.

Officers checked out the remains but later confirmed they were not human.

It was suspected they may have been parts of a bone that a dog chewed on.
