Mystery as 'human SKULL' found in layby next to woods and busy road in Sussex

A HUMAN skull is feared to have been found in a layby next to a busy road and woods in West Sussex.

Police were called to the grim discovery near Chichester at 12.35pm yesterday.

Forensic teams have recovered the suspected human skull from alongside the B2141 for analysis.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “Police were alerted to the discovery of suspected human remains near a layby.

"Further examination and searching of the area is ongoing to establish if other skeletal objects are located there.

"This discovery is being treated as unexplained at this time."

The find comes just days after human remains were discovered by a walker on a beach in nearby West Wittering.


Forensics teams were sent there on Sunday following reports that a "decayed skeleton" had been found in mud in Sheepwash Lane.

The walker called police who today confirmed the skeleton was human. 

West Wittering is a millionaire’s playground and home to holiday pads for stars including Frank Lampard and Only Fools and Horses actor Nicholas Lyndhurst. 

Tens of thousands of Brits flock there each summer to take advantage of its sprawling golden shoreline. 

A Sussex Police spokesman said at the time: “Specialist forensic teams recovered the bones and have confirmed the remains are human. 

“The discovery is currently being treated as unexplained and enquiries to identify the bones are ongoing.”
