Mother Judy Jones and close family members laid sunflowers at the grave of the schoolgirl, who was found dead in woodland near her home in Easthouses, Midlothian, in 2003.

Community leaders said the teenager's murder a decade ago remained "a tragedy we will never forget".

The 14-year-old's body was found on a wooded path known as Roan's Dyke at about 10.30pm on June 30, 2003, after her boyfriend Luke Mitchell took her family to the spot.

Jodi had been taking a short-cut to Mitchell's home when she was attacked and killed.

Mitchell's case is currently being considered by the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission after previous appeal bids were unsuccessful.

A malicious prosecution for a crime which never existed. An exposť of egregious malfeasance by public officials.
Indeed, the truth never changes with the passage of time.
