POLICE have confirmed human remains have been found inside a crocodile, which was found in water north of Cairns.

The 4.3-metre estuarine croc was found at Mowbray River near Craiglie overnight and removed by officers from the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.

It was examined by a specialist in Cairns today with human remains located inside.
