No Rest for the Wicked quest bug


So i have experienced while attempting to play through this DLC a quest breaking bug. In the ‘No Rest for the Wicked’ quest, i am unable to remove the bones from the grave, there is no option for it. Checked the gameplay stream that the devs did on this quest a while back, same grave but no option to pick up the bones in my game. Have attempted to re-load previous saves but this has achieved nothing. As i am playing on PC (Steam version 1.7.1) i naturally assumed that this is a mod conflict so tried again without mods active - this sadly did not work. Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this bug - i cannot find any record of it anywhere else. Thankfully, this quest is not necessary for the completion of the DLC, but this is still incredibly annoying


weird, i often find i can overcome bugs and crashes by not playing the game AT ALL for a few days, its really not ideal though
