A POST mortem has revealed that human remains found on Felinheli beach are that of a man's right foot.

Human remains were found on the beach near Bangor yesterday (Wednesday). North Wales Police said a post mortem revealed that the remains are of a right foot and are strongly believed to be male.

A spokesperson for the force added: "It is difficult to ‘age’ the remains and tests indicate it had been in the water no longer than seven days.

"The post mortem revealed nothing to suggest the death is suspicious and inquires are still on-going to identify the remains and inform next of kin."

Det Inspector Gerwyn Thomas at Caernarfon CID, who is leading the investigation, added: "Our focus remains on identifying the remains and passing the very sad news onto a family and friends.

"DNA has been obtained and we will now prioritise a check on the national database and of missing people, initially locally but if needs be wider still.

"As a matter of courtesy we have spoken with the families of people who are missing locally to ensure them we are doing all we can to reunite the remains with the respective family as quickly and as sensitively as possible."
