A police investigation is being carried out after human remains were found in Loch Lomond.

A park ranger contacted police after spotting fragments of bone in the loch near the village of Tarbet in Argyll at about 15:30 on Wednesday.

Forensic tests have since established that the bones were human.

Strathclyde Police said inquiries were at a very early stage and it would take a while to establish who they belonged to or if any criminality was involved.

It is thought the remains were spotted close to the shore.

The area has been cordoned off.
