Twenty three years ago villagers gathered for a funeral at a cemetery in North Norfolk...but nobody knew exactly who was being buried.

Despite a lengthy investigation, police couldn't identify the body of a man washed up on Weybourne beach in 1989.

But now, thanks to new forensic techniques, that mystery has been solved. He was called Mark Sutherland and came from Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire.
