Teams of Police officers have been carrying out searches in Gibraltar in a bid to find out what happened to a sailor who went missing more than 30 years ago.

Following new information in relation to the disappearance of 18-year-old Royal Navy Rating Simon Parkes in 1986, searches will begin at Trafalgar Cemetery.

The week-long search is headed up by Detective Inspector Roger Wood, from Hampshire Constabulary’s Major Crime Investigation Team, alongside officers from Royal Gibraltar Police.
