South Yorkshire Police opt to demolish farmhouse extension

On day nine of the search for Ben Needham on the Greek island of Kos, South Yorkshire Police have taken the dramatic decision to demolish part of the farmhouse near where the toddler was last seen.

It's an extension that was not built when Ben went missing 25-years-ago.

The detective in charge of the search has thanked the family that owns the property for allowing them to go ahead with the demolition.
