A 17-year-old boy has been found guilty of killing a teaching assistant in Lancashire.

The teenager was convicted of the murder of Lindsay Birbeck, whose body was found in a shallow grave behind Accrington Cemetery in August last year.

She was discovered wrapped in two plastic bags 12 days after she had gone missing.

The mother-of-two left her home in Burnley Road, Accrington, for a late afternoon walk on August 12 to a nearby wooded area known as the Coppice.

She had invited her teenage daughter, Sarah, and her boyfriend for tea at 6pm but when she didn't return home her family raised the alarm.
