Human remains found at Beeston Regis on Friday have been identified as belonging to Kenneth Jones from Mount Street, Cromer.

Police say they are continuing to treat the death as unexplained and officers are now working to find out when he died and how he came to be in dense woodland at Beeston Regis.

Further tests will be undertaken before the results are put before the Norfolk Coroner.

Police say Mr Jones, 63, was quite a private man who would socialise in and around the Cromer area and was known to a number of people.

He went missing towards the end of April this year and his family have been informed of his death.

The remains were found in dense woodland, close to Beeston Hall School, on Friday afternoon.
