Dozens of Bernard Madoff's accomplices are still walking free - that is the claim of the fraud investigator who first warned of the investment manager's scam a decade ago.

Harry Markopolos wrote to the US authorities about Madoff's multi billion dollar Ponzi scheme five times over an eight year period.

He told Alex Ritson that the Securities and Exchange Commission and other financial watchdogs are still not up to the job.
