The excavation followed a recent claim that part of a human skeleton was present at the site when the building was built in the 1960s.

DS Joanne Benton said: "We carried out a thorough and robust investigation into this matter and have found no human remains at the site. As such, our officers have been stood down from the scene.

"The person who reported this to us did so with good intentions and I would like to thank the public for their patience while we carried out this work
