The mother of a seven-year-old girl who was murdered in 1992 has been given fresh hope in her campaign for justice for her daughter.

Nikki Allan was stabbed 37 times and battered over the head with a brick in a derelict warehouse in Sunderland.

Police have told her mother, Sharon Henderson, that they are reviewing the case with the help of new advances in forensic techniques.

Today, she joined other families whose loved ones have been killed at a conference organised by the National Victims' Association.

The organisation aims to support families, lobby the government and push for more help for the families of murder victims.
