A week-long search for Moors Murders victim Keith Bennett was "not a waste of time" - despite it ending without any remains being found - a senior police officer has claimed.

Officers began excavating an area of Saddleworth Moor, near to Dovestone Reservoir, last Friday after an author and amateur sleuth claimed to have found a human jaw bone.

Speaking at a press conference today, officers from Greater Manchester Police announced that the search had now been stood down.

Detective Chief Inspector Cheryl Hughes, said an extensive search of the area identified by the author, Russell Edwards, had "found no evidence of the presence of human remains".
