BBC Archive: The mystery of Lord Lucan's disappearance

Lord Lucan disappeared on 7 November, 1974 - the night his nanny, Sandra Rivett was murdered. He was never seen publicly again.

The mystery of his whereabouts led to decades of speculation.

A High Court judge has now ruled that Lord Lucan is presumed to be dead, meaning his son has the right to inherit the family title.
