Human remains believed to be several years old have been found at the bottom of Blacknor Fort on Portland.

Police were called to the scene at about 1pm yesterday where they located the body of a male in a remote, fairly inaccessible area.

Police say coastguards helped with the recovery, they're not treating the death as suspicious, the identity can't yet be confirmed at this stage and the investigation is now in the hands of the coroner's office.
