Three people have been charged with the murder of a 14-year-old schoolgirl in Scotland in 1996.

Caroline Glachan, from Bonhill, was last seen at about 12.15am on Sunday 25 August 1996, when she walked down Dillichip Loan towards Dillichip Bridge, in West Dunbartonshire, before then going on to a tow path.

Her body was discovered later that day in the River Leven, near Place of Bonhill in Renton, about a mile from her home and on what was her mother Margaret McKeich's 40th birthday.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Grainger, of Police Scotland's Major Investigations Teams, has now said they arrested and charged two men, aged 42 and 43, as well as a 42-year-old woman in connection with the death.

He said: "I would like to thank the members of the public who have assisted with our investigation and those who have come forward with important information surrounding Caroline's death."

All three, whose general addresses were given as Dumbarton, have appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court, where they made no plea and were then remanded in custody.

Caroline grew up in Bonhill and was a pupil at Our Lady and St Patrick's High School in Dumbarton.
