Men who live, work or visit the area are being invited to eliminate themselves from suspicion by providing a mouth swab and thumbprint.

Artist Valerie Graves, 55, was found dead in a ground floor bedroom of a house she was looking after for friends on 30th December 2013.

The DNA screening will take place at the Millstream Hotel in the village from today, with posters alerting locals about the dates the screening will take place.
