New searches for missing schoolgirl

Fresh searches for a schoolgirl who went missing in Northern Ireland in 1994 are to begin in the New Year, an inquest has heard.

Arlene Arkinson, 15, disappeared near her home in Castlederg, Co Tyrone, after attending a disco in the Irish Republic with friends.

Murderer and sex offender Robert Howard was cleared of her killing five years ago.

A preliminary hearing of her inquest has opened at Belfast Coroner's Court.
