Police have made a fresh appeal for information following the death of four-year-old girl Isabelle Cowley.

Her body was found in the grounds of Raigmore Hospital, in Inverness, in the early hours of 23 February.

The girl's mother, Rachael Cowley, 42, of Shenval, Glenurquart, has been charged with murder and attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

On Tuesday evening, police stopped motorists near Raigmore and handed out leaflets.

In a statement, Northern Constabulary said it was hoped the appeal would jog people's memories.

The force said: "Police are looking for witnesses who may have seen a child with short blonde hair, wearing black boots and a blue dress and a woman with shoulder length hair, wearing a pink and white thick top, brown trousers and brown boots or similar clothing.

"Police are also looking for witnesses who may have seen a woman wearing a dark boiler suit in the area between Inshes fly-over and Balloch on the same night."
