You were correct, Panda... Martin Brunt said that was what they were doing... as well as some guff about the Posh Spice lookalike... He also said that SY were rather fed up by being bounced into the 'review' at all by Number 10.

Police probe lost two hours The Sun

From CLODAGH HARTLEY in Praia da Luz

Published: 28 Sep 2007

KATE and Gerry McCann were stunned yesterday at the latest police claim about missing Madeleine – that they buried her during a "missing two hours" while putting up posters in Spain.
"STRANGE" that the couple, from Rothley, Leics, chose to visit Spain on a national holiday when shops were shut.

MYSTERIOUS that the McCanns racked up "unjustified mileage" in their Renault Scenic – hired 25 days after Maddie disappeared.

Cops probe Spain trip Daily Mirror

By Lucy Thornton in Praia da Luz
28/09/2007

CCTV film of Gerry and Kate McCann's visit to Spain is being studied by Portuguese police, it has been claimed.

Officers apparently have footage of the parents' hired Renault driven in "places without reason" last month.

They are said to be suspicious of their last-minute change of plan to distribute missing Madeleine posters in a store in Huelva when the shops were closed. Portuguese paper Correio da Manha claimed: "Officers have been in the country trying to redefine their timetable."

The McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "The trip was organised on behalf of the Find Madeleine campaign. It was entirely open and innocent."

latest in the Wail....

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2070187/Detectives-travel-Spain-hunt-Madeleine-McCann.html

There were sightings of a girl matching Madeleine's appearance in Spain shortly after she vanished and Portuguese authorities were criticised for not informing border officials for 12 hours after they first knew she was missing.

In September 2009 the McCann's received 1,000 reports following an appeal over a Victoria Beckham lookalike seen in Barcelona who they thought may be connected to the disappearance of their daughter.

at the time. Investigators wanted to trace the woman, said to have been acting suspiciously, who asked a witness at a Barcelona marina if he was there to deliver her 'new daughter' on May 7 2007.

The well-dressed woman was described as possibly having an Australian accent and appeared agitated.
Madeline, from Rothley, Leicestershire, vanished from Portuguese holiday resort Praia da Luz in the Algarve four years ago. She was asleep in the family's holiday apartment with her brother Sean and sister Amelie when she vanished on May 3 2007 shortly before her fourth birthday.

Her parents Gerry and Kate McCann, both doctors, were eating at a nearby tapas restaurant with friends
How Madeleine McCann might look now (left) and with dark brown hair and tanned skin in case she has been living in north Africa (right) A Met Police spokesman said two officers had travelled to Portugal three times for the investigative review and two officers travelled to the Spanish city between November 23 and 25.
He would not reveal any further details but added: 'The investigative review is on-going.'

The official Portuguese and Leicestershire police investigation into Madeleine's disappearance ended in July 2008. However private detectives working for the McCann's have been working to trace her ever since.

Cops in Spain ...... 23rd - 25th Nov

McCanns appear at Leveson Inquiry ...... 23rd Nov


Did the McCanns get wind of the Spanish trip?
Please excuse my sense of humour, but if the Met had deliberately set out to give the duo the trots on their big day with the judge, then their timing was perfect.

Sleepless night?

Yes it is a free border. No checkpoints, no border to close. No need to smuggle anything across. Grasping at straws.

New from Martin Brunt:

December 05, 2011 2:52 PM

* Recommend post (0)

The Madeleine McCann review team are certainly clocking up the miles and expanding their horizons.

Initially we were told that the Scotland Yard review would be largely a paper exercise, but now we learn three detectives spent a few days in Barcelona last month.

That's on top of three trips to Portugal since the Prime Minister ordered the review on the fourth anniversary of Madeleine's disappearance in May, 2007.

Why Barcelona? Perhaps because that was the base of the private investigators Metodo 3 the McCanns hired at great and mostly fruitless expense.

Or is it because that was the sighting of the Victoria Beckham-lookalike suspect, seen and heard outside a marina restaurant asking a complete stranger: "Have you got the girl?".

The Yard is reluctant to discuss details of the latest trip, maybe because staff are conscious of the expense totting up by its 30-man squad at a time of severe cutbacks.

Some senior cops felt they were bounced into the "investigative review" by an over-anxious Prime Minister who responded to pleas from Kate and Gerry McCann.

In the old days a full-team from the Yard was regularly parachuted in to help rescue major unsolved crimes, home and abroad.

And I'm sure they are just as welcome in Portugal and Spain as they were in Pontefract and Stevenage.

To be fair Keela, the cops did put road blocks up and checked every car that went into Spain on the 4th of May. It happens quite a bit, we were searched in July of this year when passing from St Antonio in to Spain, huge traffic jam of course, never did find out why, they looked in the boot as well.

comparedna,

Metodo 3 were interviewed some time ago by a Reporter from ABCes, part of the Guardian Group, saying they did not receive the £50,000 pm
reported in the British Press.. they said they received E 160,000 plus E4,000 expenses for 6 months work......bet SY will not investigate that!!!

I"m not surprised SY are annoyed, maybe had the case been investigated by them from day one it might have been solved , Leicester
Police were clearly too provincial to handle the World Wide Coverage and McCanns.

Madeleine McCann: Yard Cops Fly To Spain



















Madeleine McCann, pictured in Portugal just a day before she disappeared





3:43pm UK, Monday December 05, 2011





Scotland Yard detectives have spent time in Spain as part of
their re-examination of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in
Portugal.



The Metropolitan Police
joined the hunt for the missing girl, who vanished in 2007, following a
request by Home Secretary Theresa May made with the backing of Prime
Minister David Cameron.


The force has now revealed that detectives working on the case flew
to Spain as part of their review and spent three days with police in
Barcelona.










Kate and Gerry McCann arriving at the Leveson inquiry last month





Officers working on the case also travelled to Portugal three times as they continue to hunt for leads.


The Met has vowed there will be no limits in its re-examination of how Madeleine disappeared from a holiday flat in Praia da Luz in the Algarve.


A huge hunt was launched after she went missing on May 3, 2007 while
her parents Kate and Gerry dined with friends nearby but she has never
been found.


Her frustrated parents, both doctors who live in Rothley, Leicestershire, have battled to retain the case's high-profile.


Mrs McCann wrote on the Find Madeleine website at the end of October: "It is a big relief to us that our Government finally agreed for a review to take place.









The Madeleine McCann review team are certainly clocking up the miles and expanding their horizons.


Read more on Martin Brunt's blog











"We are grateful to them and to the Metropolitan Police Service for
undertaking this fundamental and highly valuable procedure which has
been underway now for several months.


"Although it will be a lengthy and difficult process, it is definitely a major step forward for Madeleine."


Detectives refused to reveal what led them to Barcelona between
November 23 and 25, but a Scotland Yard spokesman said: "The review
continues.


"There has been very good co-operation with Portuguese authorities
and liaison will continue. We are not prepared to discuss specific
details of these visits nor speculate about any future deployments to
Portugal or elsewhere."


Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, the senior investigating
officer, is understood to have been among a team of detectives who went
on the trips.










Madeleine McCann was snatched from an apartment in Praia da Luz





Sky's crime correspondent Martin Brunt says police are not believed
to have made a breakthrough and are still doing the groundwork of
liaising with foreign officers.


A total of 30 people are now working on the force's Operation Grange.


The review prompted criticism when it was launched in May, with
politicians expressing concerns that it would divert resources from
other crime victims.


Portuguese detectives, helped by officers from Leicestershire Police, carried out a massive investigation into Madeleine's disappearance.


But the official inquiry was formally shelved in July 2008, after which no police force was actively looking for her.


This is from sky but no reference to the Reporter

Just exactly WHO is telling Martin Brunt about all this?
Another bent cop 'on the team'?
Like the phone hacking team where a cop on the team was telling NGN about what they were discovering?
SY would not, i don't think, be telling anyone, let alone possible future suspects, what it is they are doing, would they?
So WHERE is Brunt getting his info from and inadvertingly, or not, keeping the Mcs 'informed' about the 'review'
Perhaps Mr Brunt should be interviewed.
Just a thought.
Sky news has dropped this quicker than it would take to lose a child if you were out drinking with your mates.
Phonecall from the Yard?
