Human Leg Found In Dublin Recycling Plant
Police are investigating after a human leg was found in a recycling plant in Ireland.
A worker found the severed limb at Thorntons plant in Killeen Road, Ballyfermot, west Dublin, on Thursday night.
Officers have closed off the area as forensic examinations take place.
A doctor sent to the plant confirmed the leg was human, but was unable to say whether it is from a woman or a man.
Thorntons operates recycling and recovery facilities in Dublin, Meath and Kildare.
It employs more than 300 staff and operates a fleet of over 100 trucks.
