An inquest will be opened tomorrow into the death of a young woman whose body was found close to a country lane in Sunderland.

The body of 23-year-old Monique Moore, who lived in Rowell Close in the Ryhope area, was discovered in Nettles Lane, near the Hall Farm area, shortly after midday on Saturday.
