Lord Lucan: New evidence

The BBC's Inside South East programme has uncovered new evidence in the case of Lord Lucan which suggests that the peer may have had plastic surgery after the murder of his children's nanny and subsequent disappearance in November 1974.

Medical records kept by the eminent surgeon Dr John Watson, made public after his death, show that Lucan had surgery following a powerboat accident in 1963.

The surgeon's Harley Street clinic was raided by Scotland Yard detectives immediately after Lucan's disappearance on November 7, 1974.

The records and personal testimony from interviewees for the programme suggest the missing Peer may have had surgery to change his appearance after the murder of his children's nanny, Sandra Rivett.
