The return of a Stone Age skeleton to North Wales will be officially marked today.

The 'Lady of the Little Orme' is thought to be nearly 5,500 years old.

The remains will now be a permanent exhibit after successful crowdfunding by the Museum, town council and community of Llandudno.

They raised £3,000 to secure the exhibition space and return Blodwen from the Bacup Natural History Museum, Lancashire.

The skeleton was found in a quarry in Orme in 1891 but taken to Lancashire where it's spent the last 120 years.
