A human foot found near a school was likely 'deliberately dismembered' from a woman aged over 16, police say. 

The body part was found by two dog walkers near the old railway track at Louth Road in New Waltham, Lincolnshire on April 25. 

Forensic experts say the foot could have been intentionally removed from the woman - who is said to have been roughly 5ft 2'' - within the last 12 months, but specialists are still working to establish the full circumstances behind the grisly discovery.
