The search team looking for the remains of Ben Needham has started work for the 16th day running.

Officers from South Yorkshire Police are continuing to dig on a second site on the Greek island of Kos, where rubble and earth from close to the spot where Ben was last seen alive was dumped.

Detectives are working on the theory that Ben, from Sheffield, may have been crushed and buried by a digger which was clearing a building plot close to where the 21-month-old vanished 25 years ago.

Ben was playing outside a farmhouse his grandfather was renovating when he vanished.

The search team examined the area around the house before moving to the second site.

Ben's family always believed he had been abducted but detectives have now warned his relatives to 'prepare for the worst'.
