Four skeletons have been found on a building site in Plymouth's city centre.The bones - thought to date back to the late-1600s - were unearthed last week on the former Crescent Cars site at the junction of Athenaeum Street and Notte Street.

The first set of bones was found over a week ago. However, two or three more skeletons were discovered by archaeologists working on the site on Thursday and Friday last week.

A team of experts from Exeter Archaeology has been investigating the remains and the team is planning to move the bones this week after it acquires a burial licence. History experts from Plymouth City Council have also been involved.
