A couple have been found guilty of murdering a woman who went missing nearly two decades ago.

Margaret Fleming has not been seen since 1999, and was reported missing in 2016.

Avril Jones, 58 and Edward Cairney, 77 have now been found guilty of murdering the 19-year-old woman at their home in Inverkip.

They have been on trial at the High Court in Glasgow for the last seven weeks, and jurors took just three and a half hours to reach a majority verdict on all charges.

The pair have been warned they could face life sentences when they return to court in July, and have been remanded in custody until then.

The couple denied murdering her by 'unknown means' between December 18 1999 and January 5 2000 at their home in Inverkip, Inverclyde, or elsewhere in Scotland.
