A large-scale cordon at the scene where human remains were found in Sutton-in-Ashfield is being removed.
Officers began vacating the scene yesterday afternoon (Thursday 18 May) as the digging work at the site has been completed.
Specialist officers working alongside scientists have been at the site for three weeks.
Superintendent for the County, Claire Rukas said: "This continues to be an extremely complex investigation with officers working alongside a whole range of scientists to find out who this person is and how they died.
"I would like to thank the community for their full support as we know a cordon of this size would have caused much inconvenience.
"We have now reopened the road, and our cordon has been removed. We will keep you updated as the investigation develops."
