Kingsmills massacre: Police inquiry re-opens after fingerprints matched

Police are to re-open their inquiry into the Kingsmills massacre following the discovery of new evidence.

A palm print found on a getaway van has been linked to a set of fingerprints.

The new evidence comes 40 years after the killings by an IRA gang and 13 years after the families began fighting for an inquest.
