Severed foot 'belonged to missing student' Graham Rogers

A human foot discovered nearly 20 years ago near the River Severn has been identified as belonging to that of a missing student.

Graham Maxwell Rogers was studying at Lancaster University and living with his parents at Wotton-under-Edge when he went missing in April 1993 aged 26.

The body part was found later that year on 7 November near Lydney, Glos.

Gloucestershire's Coroner's Court recorded an open verdict and said the cause of death was unascertained.

Mr Rogers' identity was confirmed after DNA tests were carried out comparing the body part with his next of kin.
