AN ARCHAEOLOGIST who discovered a mass grave containing the remains of 429 children in a Belfast bogland has called for a commission to investigate mother and baby homes in Northern Ireland.

Toni Maguire has been fighting for an investigation for the past seven years since Sunday Life first revealed in 2014 that 244 infants, with an average age of just three months, died at the Nazareth Lodge orphanage in the city between 1940 and 1951.
