Just a regular fingerprint as far as I know.
Yes that’s right, the ‘ridges’ are basically the lines you see on your fingers that form a unique pattern
Also in today's Hull Daily Mail:
"The number of flashers and peeping toms reported to police in Hull is much higher than the national average according to Home Office data."
The worrying numbers of flashers and peeping toms caught in Hull
Inquest adjourned to an unspecified date pending further police inquiries. Looks like we'll be waiting some time for any proper details, and her family to finally lay her to rest.
I feel for her nearest not being able to hold a funeral. This must be an unimaginable living hell without having to endure this limbo.
I wonder why they would have had Libby's fingerprints on file?
(ignore me, daft question, should've engaged my brain!)
I haven’t watched it for a while. Just replayed it a few times. It’s so hard to see isn’t it. Yes I think I see a bag being put between the two front seats into the back. But I recall early on thinking it was something in the footwell. The jacket theory I could see too, but it was so cold that night, even in a very warm car I wouldn’t want my jacket off. Unless he’s taken her an extra jacket and started the conversation that way ‘you’re going to get cold sat here’ etc? Put a jacket round her and then walked her to the car. Then I see her sway, almost hesitate but a moment later plop into the seat. Unsure but not fighting or reluctant.
Mobile phone fingerprint ID maybe?
Taken from her room and belongings during the investigation.
Ah, maybe. Interesting thought. I've never had mine taken, but of course they'd be in my phone.
Yep that too. Interesting after 7 weeks in water that they were able to take decent fingerprints.
At the start of a missing persons investigation, police take samples of fingerprints/DNA (e.g from hair brushes) to assist in any formal ID further down the line to try and minimise further family distress that would occur by having to ask parents to do DNA swabs.
It's standard practice to obtain fingerprints and DNA samples early on in a missing persons investigation.

Key details from today:
All the key details as Libby Squire inquest opens in Hull
In her evidence, Catherine Land has said: “I have compared friction ridge finger prints and impressions of Liberty Anna Squire and have no doubt that the body is her.”
This to me sounds like they simply compared them to fingerprints taken from her room and belongings.
Without sounding too gruesome or macabre, would that suggest a level of preservation? If they were able to get fingerprints from her skin?
My first thought as I have an iPhone but @Vermont24's is a far more straightforward explanation! (The police would probably still be waiting if they'd asked Apple for help...)
The code of practice re missing person’s data
Police immediately had her full room and belongings, untouched, at their disposal. That would've provided them with a wealth of information early on in the investigation.
The ID evidence was a written report, so doubtless there would have been a lot more detail.
"Catherine Land, an identification expert from West Yorkshire Police, is providing evidence under rule 23, where her written statement is being read out to the court by the coroner’s assistant."
