Kerry Needham: 'I know my son Ben is alive'

A police force has secured £700,000 from the Home Office to continue investigating the disappearance of Sheffield toddler Ben Needham.

Ben was 21 months old when he went missing while on a family holiday on the Greek island of Kos in 1991.

His mother Kerry has always maintained her son is alive and was probably abducted and has vowed to find him.

She told the BBC she hoped South Yorkshire Police could investigate lines of inquiry that would lead to her son.
