David Burgess convicted of murder of Yolande Waddington

A man has been convicted of murdering 17-year-old nanny Yolande Waddington in 1966.

David Burgess, 64, was found guilty by a majority verdict of 11 to one at Reading Crown Court after the jury deliberated for five days.

For 46 years, the unsolved murder cast a shadow over the Berkshire village of Beenham.

BBC South Today's Joe Campbell reports on how new DNA technology led to Burgess' conviction.
