The Disappeared: Human remains found in search for Brendan Megraw

Human remains have been found in County Meath by a team searching for an IRA victim missing for almost 40 years.

They were found in a drainage ditch on Oristown bog, near Kells, by contractors called in to prepare the site for forensic excavations.

The land is being examined in the search for the remains of Belfast man Brendan Megraw.

The BBC's Chris Buckler visited the scene and spoke to Jon Hill from the Independent Commission for the Location of Victims' Remains.
