The body of a man who was murdered seven years ago by his girlfriend's ex-husband has been found in Lancashire woodland.

David Guilfoyle was last seen leaving a pub in Accrington in 2005. Shane Fitzpatrick was convicted of killing the 37-year-old in a jealous rage and was jailed for life.

Fitzpatrick, 42, recently confessed to police where he had hidden his murder victim's boy, as ITV Granada reported.
