A female body without a head or forearms has been found on the bed of an Austrian lake.

The gruesome discovery was made by a reed cutter at the shallow Lake Neusiedl, which straddles the border between Austria and Hungary.

Police say the corpse, which has not yet been identified, had been there for several months.

Sniffer dogs and police divers have continued to scour the area in an effort to find the remaining body parts.
