Police searching for missing toddler Ben Needham on the Greek island of Kos are negotiating to demolish part of the farmhouse on the site.

A specialist team has begun a second week of detailed excavations near where the 21-month-old went missing in 1991.

As operations continued, Ben's sister described the pain the family is feeling as they await news.

Detective Inspector Jon Cousins told reporters he was negotiating with the family who own a farmhouse at the site, as he wants to knock down part of the structure.

The detective said a 1991 press photograph showed that part of the building was not there when Ben went missing.
