24 years on since Ben Needham went missing

The 24th anniversary of Ben Needham's disappearance from Kos is being marked today, as officers from Operation Ben reveal information for the first time about their investigations in Greece earlier this year.

Ben, aged 21 months, vanished from outside the farmhouse his grandad Eddie was renovating in the north of the island.

For more than two decades the Needhams have believed a prisoner in a Greek jail and a notorious criminal family in the north of the country had vital evidence about Ben's whereabouts

After 24 years they have finally been interviewed, and what they said may have changed the course of the investigation.
