A short video had been released before the screening of a film about the tragic tale of a Workington girl who was murdered 137 years ago.

Steve Baldwin is delighted by the demand for his trailer which will be shown in Workington's Helena Thompson Museum in June.

He has spent much of the past seven years trying to unravel the sad tale of Lucy Sands, 16, who was last seen in December 1881.

He is now working with actors and a film crew to share the story of the unsolved crime with a wider audience.

A short preview of the film will be shown in Workington. This week he released a short video.

"This is something to whet your appetite whilst we work on the full trailer," he said.
