A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man who had been due to stand trial accused of murdering his mother.

Sean Flynn is alleged to have killed Louise Tiffney in 2002 – but failed to appear at the High Court in Livingston.

The Crown said they had carried out a number of inquiries, and it was not believed Mr Flynn would be attending court in the near future.

Mr Flynn’s home address was given as Berlin in Germany.

The body of Louise Tiffney was only found 15 years after she went missing from her home in Edinburgh

Ms Tiffney, who was 43, was last seen outside her flat in the Dean Village area of Edinburgh in May 2002.

Following extensive searches and repeated appeals from her family, her body was eventually found in 2017, near Gosford House in Longniddry in East Lothian.

Mr Flynn has been charged with her murder and of attempting to defeat the ends of justice by concealing her body in the boot of a car before driving to woods and disposing of her body there.
