Pricilla Berry disappearance: Grave exhumation completed

Police say a grave exhumation operation that could identify a woman missing for 37 years has been completed with "sensitivity and dignity".

Priscilla Berry, 39, vanished from Mochdre, Conwy county, in 1978 and officers now believe her body was discovered in the sea in 1980.

The remains were buried in a communal grave at Llangwstenin Cemetery.

Police believe advances in genetic DNA science could now help match samples taken from known family members.
