A pair of paranormal explorers have revealed the moment they stumbled across a human skull near an abandoned pub.
Couple Danny and Felicity Duffy were on a trip to a woodland area just off Blackburn Road near Egerton Park in Bolton, Greater Manchester on Monday (March 1) when they made the discovery.
Police have confirmed human remains were found in the area and the duo have since shared to their YouTube channel the moment they found the skull.
Danny first notices an army-style jacket and asks Felicity: "What's that? That blue thing?"
Felicity kicks the jacket and says: "Yeah. Somebody left it on the rock."
Danny then takes a closer look and realises there is a skull lying next to the jacket, saying: "What the hell is that?
"Move away from that."
He retches and gags behind the camera as his partner asks: "Do you know what it looks like? Oh my God it's got a jaw!"
Danny puts on his gloves and carefully picks up the human remains.
"There's a coat next to it and there's actually leaves growing on it [skull]," he adds.
"This is definitely no toy, this is real."
The couple then called the police who soon arrived and cordoned off the area close to the building.
A statement released by Greater Manchester Police confirmed the remains as a human skull.
They said: "Enquiries are underway to ascertain how the skull came to be in the area, but investigators do not believe that this is linked to any other investigations at this stage and are keeping an open mind.
"Forensic analysis is ongoing at the scene to establish the age of the skull and how long it has been there for – both of which currently remain unclear.
"No arrests have been made and there is no threat to the wider public."
Detective Inspector Debbie Hurst, of GMP's Bolton CID, added that it was a "very surprising discovery" and investigations are ongoing.
"What we do know is that the item found has been confirmed to be a human skull, but it is still unknown how old the skull is and how long it has been at the location for – these enquiries by specialist forensic officers are ongoing and will be determined in due course," he explained.

"By the very nature of this discovery, we do understand some concern in the community and of course the sheer intrigue that this investigation brings with it, however we are confident that there is no threat to the public and that this isn’t currently linked to any other ongoing investigations.
"We are keen to establish the facts as soon as we can but the work that is ongoing must be conducted thoroughly and properly before we get to that stage. If anyone has any information about this discovery that could aid our enquiries we ask that they make contact with police."
