Heard on the radio earlier that following forensics, police now know who the lady was, a 36 year old from a nearby town.

yes apparently her employers recognised the description that was on the news last night. She hadn't shown up for work. The forensic teams are at her flat and three polish men are helping with enquiries.
seemingly some more bits have been found at Carnoustie beach

It did say on scottish news that they had called in special counsellors in for them as they are very distressed as you could imagine.
also said this morning that one man in particular is helping them with their enquiries and may be charged later today.
they are still trying to locate her next of kin thorugh interpol. I have seen lithuania mentioned but whether thats right or not I dont know.

Bid to find beach victim's family

The woman's head and hands were found on Tuesday

Police are continuing efforts to contact the family of a migrant worker whose severed head and hands were found on a beach in Angus.

The 36-year-old foreign national, who was living in Brechin, had been reported missing by her employer.

Two young sisters discovered the head in a plastic bag at Arbroath on Tuesday. Police later found two hands.

Tests are also continuing on possible human remains found along the coast at Carnoustie by coastguards.

Police said the woman, whose identity was established after hundreds of calls from the public, had been in the UK for about 18 months.

She was working as a casual labourer.

Police said a "phenomenal" response from the public led to the identification of the woman.

Officers are still trying to reach her family to inform them of her death.

The Angus area, which lies between Dundee and Montrose on the east coast of Scotland, is popular with Eastern Europeans seeking jobs in the fruit-picking industries and other labouring work.

Last year there were an estimated 4,000 migrant workers in the region.

I doubt they must have told the police where to find the rest. A suitcase has been recovered from Arbroath harbour with more body parts. :(

Disgusting...saw this announced on TV. When they said it was that of a foreigner, the tone was as though they'd just found the head of a pig.

My sympathy goes out to her family :(
