A bag containing suspected human bones was found today on a motorway slip road, police said.

A motorway workman was clearing vegetation on the slip road at junction 14 on the M5 North, north of Bristol, when he made the grisly discovery.

A police spokesman said officers and forensic teams had been sent to investigate at the exit for Thornbury, in South Gloucestershire.

A single lane on the slip road has been closed while police carry out a search of the area.
