Gardai were alerted to an area along Military Road on Saturday evening when a group of tourists discovered a human torso.

A widespread search of the area was then launched, and similar discoveries were made in several locations.

A man (30s) was arrested in Wexford last night in relation to the discovery of the human remains, and was brought to Bray Garda station where he is being questioned.
