Police in England believe that they have found the body of an Irish man who has been missing for twenty years.

Hugh Toner from Newry, Co Down walked out of a hospital in a eland in 1994. He was dressed only in a vest and pyjama bottoms.

It is now thought by police that a body found on Saddleworth Moor in Yorkshire may be that of Mr Toner.

His son Sean has given a DNA sample to police as they try to identify the remains: “it’s hard to explain you know, you do feel very emotional about it.

“Part of you wants it to be him and part of you doesn’t.”
