Officers think the bag contains human remains and a cordon will be in place while the investigation continues.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity close to the river, where a submerged shopping trolley and the bags containing the bones were discovered nearby.

Alternatively, anyone who has seen the bags in the river or knows how they came to be in the water or who uses the route regularly is asked to come forward with any relevant information.

Anyone with any information or who has any knowledge of the incident is asked to contact Suffolk police, quoting reference: 37/49998/20.

The grisly discovery comes after US police charged a man with the murder of a couple whose bodies were found in a suitcase in West Seattle.

A video of a group of teenagers discovering the bodies was uploaded to TikTok where it has been viewed more than 30 million times. It was taken down from the social media site earlier this month.

Michael Lee Dudley, 62, was the landlord of Jessica Lewis, 35, and Austin Wenner, 27, and has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.

Mr Wenner and Ms Lewis' bodies were found inside bin bags and in suitcases that washed ashore in West Seattle on 19 June.

The medical examiner's office concluded the deaths most likely occurred on or around 9 June.

Family members explained how the pair had been in a relationship for over seven years and renting a room in the suspect's house since December 2019.

Lewis' aunt Gina Jaschke launched a GoFundMe page in an attempt to find information on the couple's killer.

She wrote: "Jessica & Cash were good-hearted people. She leaves behind four beautiful children. Their parents and family are heartbroken beyond words. Along with countless friends and loved ones."
