'No crime' linked to Swaithe farmland bones find
Detectives investigating the discovery of human remains on farmland near Barnsley say there is no evidence of a crime connected to the person's death.
The skull and bones of a man were found on land near Swaithe on 4 February.
South Yorkshire Police said that after an examination of the scene and bones there was "no evidence at this time of a crime taking place".
The force said, however, the discovery "still raises concerns" and work to identify the man is ongoing.
