Search for Ben Needham will continue, says mother

The mother of a toddler who disappeared in 1991 has said the search for her son will continue, following news that a Cyprus man is not Ben Needham.

Police said a DNA test, which was carried out on the man, proved he was not Ben.

His mother, Karen Needham, said there were "lots of lines of inquiry" that could be followed.

Ben, from Sheffield, vanished when he was 21 months old while on holiday on the Greek island of Kos.
