A ghost-hunting YouTuber couple have been slammed after posting a video of themselves discovering a human skull, which one of them picked up and flaunted to the camera before calling the police.
Graphic footage, posted on the pair's YouTube channel, shows the self-titled 'urban explorers' stumbling across the remains in a wooded area near Bolton, Greater Manchester.
But in a shocking twist, YouTuber Danny Duffy is seen in the video picking up the skull while partner and fellow social media star Felicity Duffy films the incident.
He then flaunts the skull to the camera for a number of close-ups while proclaiming 'this is as real as it gets'.
After three minutes of inspecting the skull, the pair finally call the police.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Officers have since confirmed that remains are that of a human - though no more details have yet been release.
However the pair, who have more than 150,000 subscribers, have now come under fire after releasing an hour-long video of the discovery on YouTube.
One viewer who commented on the video said: 'I can't believe you have posted this,' while another accused the pair of 'disturbing a crime scene'.
And last night a former police officer turned private detective told MailOnline officers would not have wanted the pair to have touch the remains before their arrival.

The shocking video starts with the pair sharing a 'teaser' clip of the moment they discover the skull in a wooded area near to an abandoned pub.
After a graphic footage warning, the pair then discuss news coverage of the discovery, which made both local and national headlines.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Danny then speaks of his 'shock' at the discovery, on Monday, which he said had prompted him to take a short break from YouTube.
'We were out just doing a normal paranormal investigation when we stumbled across this pour soul, he tells the camera.
He continues: 'What you are about to witness is 100 per cent real, nothing was staged, what you are about to witness is really really graphic.
'I think I've had an hours sleep (since). What we stumbled across was absolutely disgusting, horrible, shocking.'
The video then cuts to the pair walking through the woods before stumbling across the skull, which is found next to a green army jacket and amongst undergrowth.
After initially being shocked by the discovery, Danny is then seen putting on gloves to pick up the skull.
'This is 100 per cent real, this is someone's head, I am not joking right now,' he says as the camera zooms in on the skull.
After inspecting the skull for three minutes, the pair then film themselves ringing the police.
