Costa cock-up

Post  Chris on Thu 10 May - 7:22

The Sun begrudgingly informs readers it was a non-story but overlooks to point out their cock-up in bigging it up with the fake number plates bit.

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4307563/Maddie-McCann-lookalike-driver-in-cop-quiz.html


A MAN seen driving a Madeleine McCann lookalike days after she vanished will speak to cops.

Swiss Karsten Mayer, 41, says his blonde daughter was wrongly identified by a British tourist.

The dad of three added he was turning himself over to police after being spotted leaving a campsite a few hours’ drive from Praia da Luz, Portugal, where Madeleine, three, vanished in 2007.

Holidaymaker Karen Sisson, 49, claimed the girl in the car looked “groggy” and “alienated”.

Karsten said: “I had a girl around Maddie’s age in the car. She was my daughter. I was at the camping ground with my family. She was tired after a long road trip. It’s unbelievable that I’m some kind of suspect.”

Swiss cops said Mayer was “all but” ruled out of their enquires.

UK cops claim to have 195 leads in their hunt for Madeleine, of Rothley, Leics.

IMO it really doesn't matter if The Scun don't mention the made up car plates, its the fact that yet again another made up sighting has been blown out of the water, and remember at one time of day we wouldn't have had a UK paper following up with this little piece.
Wonder what Deadwood will make of this sarga????

"A man seen driving a Madeleine Mccann lookalike"............is Madeleine now a car to be driven?

"dad of three turning himself over to the police"..........so he must be guilty if he's turning himself over to the police?

What an appalling piece of "journalism". I hope Mr Mayer sues the whole damned lot of them and demands a public apology. This is absolutely disgraceful.

i agree mara, but it's only disgraceful when the McCanns are the target.

Have been trawling around in the expectation of an official apology from the woman who started all this off and the hacks who actively encouraged her come-to-naught fantasies, especially the Olive Press and the Scum.

Silly me - I thought they might just have felt a modicum of guilt.
Maybe they're just hiding away, camouflaging their blushes with blemish concealer ......

C'mon AG - we both know better than that!

They're probably already pulling the next dodgy sighting out of the tombola of tripe (aka the 195 leads) and getting ready to indulge in their next fantasy, sorry, headline, which will involve various reporters playing bull**** bingo and potentially ruining another innocent family's life and standing in their local community.

Still, they have to make money somehow, as we are no longer able to use old newspapers to wrap chips in.

Sheesh

I can remember the days of fish and chips wrapped in newspaper! However they do still have a few uses today - pets' bedding maybe and disposing of unpleasant items like nappies.

Hi NBY

I thought the done thing was to dispose of your used nappies by simply chucking 'em in the boot of your holiday hire car

Newspapers are handy for lining a pet carrier though!

And everytime they have a huge 'sighting' and it's blown out of the water within 24 hours more people will start to question this charade.

Whhy hasn't one single sighting so far yielded any results?

The most famous missing girl on the planet and 5 years down the line all these 'sightings' are debunked so quickly it PROVES Maddie's case is well known and thoroughly investigated thus far. After all, ALL these people have been ruled out already!

I spread newspapers across the dining table when I go out. Strange you say? My cats know they're not supposed to sit there, but they're smart enough to wait until I go out and scarper when they hear me coming! Muddy paw prints give them away. So, newspaper comes in handy!

The 'sighting,' by a bank teller in a street in Belgium could be resurrected, I think. That was a good one!

Not good enough for the McCanns to go hotfoot to Belgium to check it out though
