GARDAI have calmed fears that a human foetus had been found in a dustbin after a a postmortem showed the remains was just a sheep's stomach.

The discovery was made in Clondalkin, West Dublin, last night and tests immediately began to establish whether the remains were human after initial reports suggested it was a foetus.

However, closer examination found the flesh was from a sheep's stomach.
