The family of a Teesside toddler who disappeared in Germany 30 years ago are demanding to see case files held by the Royal Military Police (RMP).

Katrice Lee vanished on her second birthday from a shop at the military base at Paderborn, where her father was stationed.

Her father, Richard Lee, criticised the investigation and said the RMP were "as good as the Keystone Cops".

The RMP is refusing to release the files but is re-examining the case.

Katrice went missing in a NAAFI shop while out with her mother Sharon, who does not believe the original theory about what happened is possible.

She said: "The German police said that she'd wandered out of a busy NAAFI that morning, past a load of shoppers, down the ramp, past the ticket seller, across this car park, through that hedge... walk to the river's edge, throw herself in - and not a soul saw her do it.

"It's just ludicrous. It's absolutely ridiculous.

"What upsets me even more was the Military Police pursued that theory above all others.  ..."
