Roman remains found at an airport
The remains of five Roman bodies have been uncovered during redevelopment work at Humberside airport.

The bodies of four adults and one child were found when archaeologists carried out excavation work.

The bodies are at least 1,700 years old and were lying east to west, which suggests they were Christians. One body was lying face down.

The remains have been taken to Lincoln where they will be cleaned up and examined.
