A bystander said they watched police comb the area following the discovery.

‘The bones were put in those brown paper bags that police put evidence in,’ they said.

‘Then all the work on the playground stopped for the rest of the day.’

Construction is currently underway to build a new aquatic-themed playground. 

Work on the site was shut down because of hard lockdown in April. It was then expected to restart in August.

The new playground will include a rope pendulum swing, spinning bowls, a fishing platform and a sea reed climbing net. 

Contractors were still not allowed back on the site on Friday.
