Exclusive: two separate sources identify 'Ben Needham'

Calendar can exclusively reveal that a gypsy living in Greece has been named by two separate sources as Ben Needham, who disappeared as a toddler from the island of Kos in 1991. The breakthrough has come after Ben's mum Kerry and one of our producers appeared on Greek TV late last year.

A caller to the show, which specialises in finding missing people, specifically named a man living in the north of the country. The same name was given to Kerry independently when she made a follow-up trip to Greece.

Now Kerry has spoken of her frustration that a DNA test, promised at the time has still not been done. Her MP Labour's Angela Smith has confirmed she is raising the matter with the Foreign Office.
