The remains of an Irish vet who was murdered in Flintshire in October have been repatriated to the Republic of Ireland ahead of her funeral on Thursday.

Catherine Gowing, who had been living in New Brighton, near Mold, vanished in October. Parts of her body were later found at two separate sites in north Wales.

Clive Sharp, a 46-year-old man from Gwynedd, has been charged with her murder.

The 37-year-old vet was originally from Clonlee, near Birr in County Offaly.

Her funeral is due to take place at St Flannan's Church in Kinnitty at 12:00 GMT on Thursday, with burial afterwards in the adjoining cemetery.

Meanwhile police in Wales are continuing to search for the rest of Ms Gowing's remains.

The vet was last seen alive at about 20:40 BST on Friday, 12 October when she was spotted on CCTV leaving a supermarket in Queensferry.

Her burned-out Renault Clio was found near a disused quarry near her New Brighton home a week later.
