Gordon Brown has raised concerns about the investigation into Madeleine McCann's disappearance with his Portuguese counterpart.

Mr Brown discussed the police inquiry with the premier Jose Socrates during private talks in Lisbon, where the pair are attending the EU summit.
Mr Brown said he wanted to be assured "that the police authorities are taking the actions that are necessary and there's proper cooperation between the British and Portuguese police".

Madeleine: Her disappearance has attracted attention from world leaders
The pair previously discussed the case in July, when Mr Socrates assured Mr Brown "everything possible" was being done to find the missing four-year-old.
Mr Brown's involvement in the case has sparked resentment in Portugal in the past.
One detective accused parents Gerry and Kate McCann of creating "constant interruptions and distractions" after it emerged they had been keeping him personally updated on developments over Madeleine, who went missing in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz on May 3.
The policeman said: "It is amazing to me that people in high positions are getting involved. I can't think of any case in Portugal where this has happened."
A source in the Portugese police admitted yesterday they have no evidence against the McCanns, who are still official suspects.
A high-ranking detective in the investigation told the Portuguese newspaper 24 Horas: "The truth is, nothing which allows us to make a definite accusation against the McCanns has yet emerged."
It also emerged yesterday that Mrs McCann is having haunting visions of Madeleine at night.
Her mother Susan Healey said: "She told me she was unable to sleep a couple of nights ago and I said, 'Did the twins wake you up?' She said, 'No, Madeleine came'."


Vision: Kate McCann has told her mother 'Madeleine came' to her a couple of nights ago

All the highlighted topics above are no longer available. Brown is going to have egg on his face if it is proved by SY that the Portugese Police were not negligent.

Hi Kitti, since we are not allowed to read the Report we don't know what it will contain. We know the Portugese worked hard and spent over E 2, Million, but Amaral himself says he regrets not checking out the ct Camera at a Hotel at the time , and had they ordered a reconstruction while the McCanns were still in Portugal;, who knows what would have happened????? Also, that they didn't keep some DNA samples of the DNA found in the wheelbase so they could have had an independent examination. The FSS had a bad reputation and Stuart Prior would have known that , several Police Stations in the U.K. have their own testing Lab and the FSS was sold to an American Companyand the DNA samples destroyed because "the PJ did not ask for their return". Now wouldn't you think such a high profile case would have prompted the PJ to ask for the reurn of the samples so they could test in their own Lab or send to the U.S. where they have the most sophisticated equipment.
