Lord Lucan declared dead but victim's son still fighting to solve mystery - full story

41 years ago he went missing and he hasn't been seen since, but today Lord Lucan was officially declared dead by a High Court Judge.

The peer disappeared after the nanny to his three children was found murdered - Lord Lucan the chief suspect. A blood-soaked car was later discovered in Newhaven, Sussex. Since then some have speculated he killed himself, others say he was helped to escape.

Today's ruling means there's now a new Lord Lucan as Andy Dickenson explains. His report contains flash photography and includes interviews with Lord John Bingham and Sandra Rivett's son Neil Berriman.
