A prisoner on a life sentence claims he knows where the body of missing Bangor woman Lisa Dorrian is buried.

Jimmy Seales told the Sunday Life that she had been buried in a sealed container on an illegal landfill site near Ballygowan, County Down.

Lisa, 25, was last seen at a party at a caravan site in Ballyhalbert, County Down, in February 2005.

Her body has never been found despite extensive air, land, and sea searches.

Police said they would study the fresh allegations.

Det Chf Insp Justyn Galloway said "I would appeal to anyone who believes they have information about Lisa's disappearance and murder to come forward and talk to us.

"Despite the passage of time, it is not too late. Police inquiries are continuing."

Lisa's family and friends have campaigned for a long time in in an effort to find her.

They said she was "a bubbly girl" whose death "ripped the family apart".

Jimmy Seales is serving a life sentence for the murder of Philip Strickland, 37, who died after being shot in the face at Ballydrain Road, near Comber,
