The mother of three-year-old Mikaeel Kular has pleaded guilty to killing her son in Scotland.

Rosdeep Adekoya, 34, was charged with murdering the toddler but admitted a reduced charge of culpable homicide at the High Court in Edinburgh today.

A major search was launched after the boy was reported missing from his Edinburgh home in January.

His body was later found around 40km away in woodland at Kirkcaldy, Fife.
