A HUMAN skull is believed to have been found at boarded up pub in Greater Manchester.
Police have today launched an investigation after possible human remains were found at the site in Bolton.
A couple, Danny and Felicity Duffy, who run a paranormal investigation YouTube channel, found the bones and contacted cops at 12.20am this morning.
Greater Manchester Police were called to the area, near Blackburn Road in Bolton, the Manchester Evening News reports.
The Duffys said they were "shaken up" when they found what they believe to be a human skull.
An army-style jacket was found near the bones, the couple told the news outlet.
They said they were unable to sleep when police released them from the scene at 3.30am.
Danny said: "I can't get it out of my mind. I've never come across anything like that before."
"We both felt sad. Felicity has been quite upset.
"We've only slept for about an hour. As soon as I woke up I thought it was a bad dream."
The couple were in the area filming for their YouTube channel when they say made the gruesome discovery.
Danny said: "We were doing our normal routine and about 10 or 15 minutes in we spotted something.
"I moved the bushes to the side and it was a human skull in the tree line. It really did give us a shock.
"My legs turned to jelly. We rang the police straight away."
The couple were quizzed by cops for around two hours before being let go, Danny added.
Police said forensic analysis is currently being carried out.
The suspected human remains are not believed to be linked to any ongoing probes, authorities said.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: "Police were called at around 12.35am on Monday 1 March to a report of a suspicious item being found off Blackburn Road, Egerton.
