Detectives launched a murder investigation after the discovery of human remains in the garden of a house in Eltham, south London.

Officers attended a semi-detached house in Lynsted Gardens, Eltham, at approximately 09:45hrs on Sunday 20 November, to execute a search warrant.

During the search officers found human remains in the garden of the three-bedroomed property. We are unable to provide further information about the remains at this stage.

An investigation is being carried out by detectives from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command led by Detective Chief Inspector John McFarlane and an incident room has been set up.

Four people, three women - one aged in her 60s and two in their 40s - and one man in his 40s have been arrested on suspicion of murder and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. One of the women in her 40s has been released on police bail pending further inquiries. The others remain in custody.

Police are carrying out inquiries in the area and excavation work is expected to last a number of days at the property.
