Just for comparison with the picture without extension:



The tree looks very similar in both, but could be very slow growing, so don't know when the 2nd pic was taken.

Hello Seahorse, I suspect both of the trees are junipers,  which tend to grow either side of half a metre a year. But the medium sized ones never get higher than 5 metres, so the one you've indicated may be fully grown. If so, it's impossible to say how far apart  (in terms of time) the two photos were taken

I think this is it on Duncan's Twitter: https://twitter.com/duncanwooditv/with_replies

It is very brief and doesn't tell us any more than his earlier comments from Facebook.

From the article above....

They have done this as delicately as they can,” she says of officers investigating the theory that the toddler was killed by digger driver Konstantinos “Dino” Barkas in an accident on the Greek island.

For as delicately read...  trashed all hope for Kerry with no result and tarnished the reputation of a dead man on the unproven word of his"close" friend......

But now I have a great, great fear. It’s like the police know Ben is buried on Kos but they don’t know where.......

Really...then spill the beans as to how and why they know....mate saying so isnt good enough! Good ol British justice in action!

How can they say that?

They must be disappointed to have found nothing of any value so far.

B****y hell, was up all night again pain kicked in, fell asleep at 6 am, managed to crawl, literally, out of bed at 9.40, missed Duncan live at farmhouse. DI Cousins with him to answer peoples q's. There were no new q's asked. What a gilt edged opp to ask the man himself re Dino stopping work for day at lunchtime, obv Duncan was looking for fresh angled q's but just getting same ones as last few days, So annoyed with myself.

ITV Calandar site give their email address, does anyone think itd be worth sending him and email with q's, he is v open and obv is looking for fresh q's from viewers?

Absolutely, send him some questions.

Whilst you're at it, ask him what his thoughts are on the McCann charade.

Sorry to hear about your pains. Hope things begin to improve for you.

Det Insp Cousins said there had been an awful lot of 'myth, rumour and legend' surrounding the case and he said: 'One of the main purposes of this investigation is to get away from that, pare it back by looking at it carefully and closely and getting to the truth.



Substitute Cousins with Redwood and the words are much the same.

If you felt up to it Hope, Duncan is live at the end of the day over there too and answers questions. I think he said 4.30 pm Greek time (is that 2.30 pm here?)

Also .....I have to ask this of everyone as it bothers me - did they ever check the cesspit of the house across the road?

Oh costello no need for any apologies, I was only hoping it would be extra news.
You must be very blessed to get an email, and any information is good to have, we know so little - please do post anything you hear     flower

No don't leave everything to me. I just post up the links/latest as and when I see them come in. I won't be around much tomorrow for example so won't be able to do it then.

Of course you should continue to comment.

I missed it at 2.30 pm, had to be taken to doctor. Told me if I want to use computer and type to limit it to the evenings. So frustrating. Anyhow I am going to message Duncan tonight with 3 specific q's. Nothing to lose.

A bit O/T Hope but can you not get some technological assistance? Speech recognition is pretty good now, for example.

As I have said before bluebell. I don't for one minute believe there is going to be a serious  conclusion into the Ben Needham case. I do really hope I am wrong. Let's leave all this to Andrew in the meantime. As I have already stated I will no longer comment.
