Eight skulls, thought to be human, have been found along with other bones in shallow waters off a popular beach in Spain, police said

A Catalonia regional police spokeswoman said the bones were found half-buried some 10ft out from Els Palangrers beach, close to the town of Roses, north of Barcelona.

She said a local snorkeller had discovered the bones on Sunday and notified police.

The officer said police are investigating the identity of the bones, how old they are and how they came to be there.

The beach is popular with bathers, divers and snorkellers.
