The search for a Lincolnshire schoolboy who disappeared on a holiday island off the south of France has been scaled down.
12-year-old Pierre Barnes, who was from Grantham, vanished on Saturday after he was caught up in a severe storm during a bike ride on the island of Porquerolles.
His father, Stephen, has admitted he believes his son is dead and said his family now hope that the youngster's body is found. The search was called off yesterday because of bad weather but has resumed again today with fewer people involved.
