Cold case squad detectives have made a renewed appeal for information 25 years on from the murder of a young woman who was strangled and dumped in the Union Canal.

Ann Ballantine, 20, vanished in November 1986 and was reported missing when she failed to turn up to celebrate Christmas with her parents.

Weeks later her naked body, bound at the hands and feet, was pulled from the city waterway just 100 yards from her Polwarth flat.
