Detectives investigating the disappearance of a young mother 14 years ago have begun exhuming several graves at a cemetery.

West Midlands Police said officers were acting on new information about the disappearance of Natalie Putt, who was aged 17 when she left her home in Dudley to visit a shop in September 2003.

A police spokesman said the inspection of a number of graves in Ruiton Cemetery in Upper Gornal, near Dudley, was expected to take several days.
