A man's head has been recovered from a beauty spot in Bedfordshire.

Police have identified the find as the head of Michael Gilbert, from Luton, whose decapitated body was discovered in the Blue Lagoon at Arlesey last May.

Police said the head was recovered from the same area on 4 February and a post mortem examination confirmed it belonged to Mr Gilbert.

Several people face charges relating to Mr Gilbert's death and a trial is due to begin on Monday.

Mr Gilbert died in January 2009 although his body was not discovered for several months.
