Search for missing schoolboy

The search is on for a 12-year-old schoolboy who disappeared during a half-term family break on a Mediterranean holiday island.

It's feared that Pierre Barnes from Grantham may have been swept out to sea during a violent storm. He'd gone for a bike ride soon after his family arrived at the island of Porquerolles, near the port city of Toulon, off the south coast of France. David Hirst reports.
