Gardaí have launched an investigation into the discovery of skeletal remains in Co Wexford.

The remains were found shortly after 11.30am this morning by a woman walking her dog at Ballyandrew, near Ferns.

The scene is currently preserved and the Office of the State Pathologist has been notified.

The body remains at the scene.

The Garda Technical Bureau will attend the scene in the morning and a Post Mortem examination is expected to be carried out tomorrow.

At this stage, gardaí say it is too early to know if there is anything suspicious to the discovery.

The gender of the remains is also unknown, as does how long the body was there.
