Police investigating the discovery of a woman's severed head and a hand on a Scottish beach said today said they had recovered a second hand.





The gruesome find was first made by two young children playing on the foreshore at Arbroath yesterday.



The head had been concealed in a plastic bag and the first hand was found shortly after by police.



A wider search of the area will continue today.



Tayside Police said the dead woman did not match anyone reported missing in its area.



"This investigation is in its infancy and it will take several days before we have forensic test results that could shed further light on the enquiry," said Detective Chief Inspector Graham McMillan.



A post mortem on the body parts will be conducted later.
