A second person has been detained by police after human remains were discovered in a north-east town.
Police earlier charged a man with murder following the discovery of the human remains in Montrose.
However, this afternoon a further person has been detained in relation to the incident.
Detective Superintendent David McLaren said: “As part of our ongoing enquiries into the discovery of human remains in Montrose on Wednesday 4 November we are speaking to a number of people as we conduct our investigation.
“Further to the 39-year-old man who has been charged, a woman is also detained in relation to the incident.
“We continue to carry out forensic work at several addresses in Montrose and those investigations are likely to go on for some considerable time.”
