The mother of a Flintshire schoolgirl who was killed 40 years ago has thanked people for laying flowers in memory of her daughter.

A man appeared in court last week charged with the murder of Janet Commins, 15, in Flint, as well as rape and sexual assault.

Janet's body was found on a school playing field on 11 January 1976.

Eileen Commins said she had been "very moved" by flowers laid at the town's Gorsedd stone circle.
