The Troubles have been over for almost a generation now but the legacy of those dark times in this country still lives on. For some, the pain has destroyed their families forever.

There are others, however, whose pain could be abated if they just got some closure on what happened to their loved ones. Families of two 'Disappeared' IRA victims who were found in the same shallow grave have used their inquests to plead for help finding the bodies of those who remain missing.

Teenage student Kevin McKee and married labourer Seamus Wright were abducted in Belfast on the same day in 1972. They were never seen alive again. Four decades later, their remains were found together in reclaimed bogland.
