Mother finds her baby's coffin had no body

A mother who has been fighting for more than 40 years to find out what happened to her dead baby's remains has discovered his coffin was buried with no body in it.

Lydia Reid was granted a court order for an exhumation to be carried out at the burial plot in Edinburgh last week but no human remains were found.

Ms Reid told BBC Scotland the news was "devastating".
