A man has been arrested in connection with the murder of a teenager more than 20 years ago in Northern Ireland.

Jonathan Cairns, 18, was found in a shallow grave in Loughermore Forest in Ballykelly in Co Derry/Londonderry, after he was attacked on his way home from a night out in April 1999.

A suspect aged 50 is in custody, a PSNI statement said.

Last April, the victim's parents made a new appeal for information on the 20th anniversary of Jonathan's death.
