Scottish Police are liaising with gardaí in an attempt to identify the body of a woman found in a shallow grave in Edinburgh last month.

The woman’s remains were found on Corstorphine Hill on 6 June.

A claddagh ring was discovered with the remains, which has led to speculation that she may have been Irish.

Police said the woman may have died up to six months ago. She was aged between 32 and 60 and was 5ft 2”.

The woman had also undergone extensive cosmetic dental implants and veneers, which police believe would have cost between £10,000-£15,000 (€12,000-€18,000).

Police are trying to trace the dental practice in which the work was carried out.
