Lord Lucan victim’s son claims missing peer is alive and living in Australia

The son of Lord Lucan’s victim has hit out at police for failing to arrest a man he claims is the missing Earl.

Neil Berriman, the son of Sandra Rivett, the nanny allegedly murdered by Lord Lucan, has said he gave police "evidence" in January that Luca was still alive.

Lucan, who would now be 85, is living in a Buddhist commune in Australia, Mr Berriman claims, and the Metropolitan Police is reportedly investigating the cold case.

Mr Berriman fears Lucan is now seriously ill and will die before facing justice for his mum’s tragic death.

He told Mirror Online: "Why is this taking so long? I’m so horrendously frustrated and disappointed.

"This man is unwell and I want him brought to justice before he dies.

"It’s kept me up at night the thought he could die without the Australian police knocking on his door. No one I know can understand why the police have not knocked on his door and interviewed him.

"They have credible evidence that this man is one of the most notorious killers in history."

Mr Berriman said he feels as though authorities "want" Lucan to die so that the "problem" goes away.

He said: "I want justice for Sandra. I am the son of a murder victim and I want justice as well.

"The establishment have closed ranks on this. I’m a massive thorn in their side. They didn’t want him to be found."

Police have several pictures and videos of the man Mr Berriman believes to be Lucan, who disappeared after Sandra was killed in Central London.

Detectives believe Lucan attacked Sandra with a lead pipe after mistaking her for his wife, Lady Veronica Lucan.

The couple's marriage had collapsed and he and Veronica were fighting for custody of their children shortly before Sandra's death.

Rumours circulated Lucan fled the country and committed suicide by throwing himself off a cross-Channel ferry from Newhaven.

A body was never recovered or washed up and it has long been suspected powerful friends helped him escape a lengthy prison sentence.
