Graveyard Body Post-Mortem 'Inconclusive'

A post-mortem conducted on a body found in a Didcot graveyard has been unable to confirm if it is that of missing teenager Jayden Parkinson.

Police had said that they believed the body discovered in a recently disturbed grave was that of 17-year-old Jayden, who was last seen on 3 December.

A Home Office pathologist recorded the cause of death as "inconclusive", Thames Valley Police have said.

The investigation is ongoing.
