HERTS police are holding a joint press conference with their Leicestershire counterparts this morning following the discovery of three body parts over the past couple of weeks.

A severed arm was discovered at Nomansland Common near Wheathampstead on Sunday - a week after the same victim's leg was found in Cottered, near Baldock.

And on Tuesday a human head was discovered in a field in Asfordby, Leicestershire.

The leg and arm belonged to the same adult male whose identity is still a mystery. While tests have revealed that the head also belonged to an adult male, police have not confirmed that all three body parts belonged to the same victim.
