“Officers remain on scene at a graveyard in Radwinter Road as our enquiries continue.”

Baffled locals claim officers are taking fingerprint samples from gravestones within the cemetery.

The graveyard houses over 1,000 plots, with a large section dedicated to those lives lost in World War One.

It is looked after by Saffron Walden Town Council, who said: “I can confirm that yesterday afternoon, the Town Council called the police following concerns of a potential illegal burial in the cemetery.

“This is now a police matter and it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
