THE remains of three newborn babies believed to have been hidden since the 1980s have been discovered by police.

Officers made the grim find in the early hours of Sunday at a house in Merseyside following a tip-off.

It is believed the babies, found in Harlow Close, St Helens, could have been born as long ago as the mid-1980s.

Two women, aged 54 and 38, and a 26-year-old man were questioned by police following the find, before being released pending further inquiries.

Merseyside Police said forensic tests were being carried out to determine the age and sex of the children.
