'Dracula graveyard' bones exposed

Human bones have been exposed at a church graveyard in Whitby after a landslide took away part of the cliff.

St Mary's was founded around AD1110 and provided the inspiration for a scene in Bram Stoker's horror novel Dracula.

The human bones have been collected and will be reinterred.

John Maguire reports.
