Danish police said on Saturday that divers had found the head and legs of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who died in mysterious circumstances on an inventor's homemade submarine.

Peter Madsen has been charged with killing the Swedish journalist. She disappeared after she went on a trip with him in his submarine on August 10.

Mr Madsen, a Dane, was arrested after his submarine sank and he was rescued.

Police identified a headless female torso that washed ashore in Copenhagen later in August as Wall's, but a cause of death has not been determined.

Mr Madsen has said Wall died in an accident when she was hit by a heavy hatch cover on board his submarine.

On Saturday, a police spokesman said there were no fractures to Wall's skull.

The body parts, a knife and some of Wall's clothes in bags weighted down by bits of metal were found in Koge Bay on Friday by Danish navy divers who are assisting the police.

Police spokesman Jens Moller Jensen said the body parts will be investigated further to try and determine a cause of death.

He said Mr Madsen and his lawyers had not had time yet to react to the new evidence.

A police prosecutor said this week that officers had found images "which we presume to be real" of women being strangled and decapitated on the hard drive on Mr Madsen's computer in a laboratory he ran.

The inventor said the computer searched by police was not his but used by everyone in the laboratory.
