Canonbie body mystery: Full report

The body of a man found in woodland two years ago still hasn't been identified, despite worldwide enquiries.

His remains were discovered near Canonbie in Dumfries and Galloway, but little more is known about him.

The police have always thought he could be Italian, or have links to Europe, but inquiries across the continent have drawn a blank.

Detectives here though haven't given up hope of solving the mystery of who he is and why he died.
