Body found after US manhunt for Christopher Dorner

Police say they have found charred remains in the rubble of a burnt-down cabin where a murder suspect had been hiding.

Ex-policeman Christopher Dorner, accused of killing three people, was thought to have barricaded himself in and exchanged fire with police.

A single gunshot was later heard inside the building, which then began to burn.

Forensic tests are to be carried out to determine if the remains are those of Mr Dorner.

Alastair Leithead reports.
