Medieval burial ground unearthed
Human remains have been found by developers building a new hotel and student block in Preston.

The bones, discovered in Marsh Lane, are believed to be from a medieval burial ground.

Five coffins and a number of skeletal remains have been uncovered, along with medieval glass and floor tiles thought to be up to 700 years old.

The site has been fenced off and work halted to allow archaeologists to examine it.
