Schoolgirl's grave opened in 55-year mystery

Police have reopened a grave in a search for a schoolgirl who went missing in 1957. Moira Anderson (11) vanished while running an errand in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire.

It is widely believed she was murdered, but her body has never been found.

Paedophile Alexander Gartshore, a local bus driver who died in 2006, has been connected with the disappearance.

Investigators confirmed yesterday that the excavated grave is that of Sinclair Upton, an acquaintance of Gartshore.
