'I never believed Vinny chose to disappear'

The widow of a 29-year-old man whose remains were found under a motorway flyover more than eight years after he vanished has said she can now "rest easy".

The remains of Vinny Derrick, 29, from Partington, Greater Manchester, were found near junction three of the M60, near Cheadle, on Wednesday.

The father-of-one, originally from Leicestershire, was last seen on a night out in Manchester in August 2003.

His widow Vicki said she "always wanted to believe that this day would come".
