BRITAIN’S top cop Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe quits this week breaking his pledge to the “end the torture” of Madeleine McCann’s parents.

The Scotland Yard chief is stepping down as his force is still NO closer to knowing what happened to Maddie, who vanished in the Algrave on a family holiday on May 3 2007.
Sir Bernard had vowed he was “confident of resolving” the world’s biggest missing child mystery after nearly 10 years.

Parents Gerry and Kate discovered Maddie was missing after they had left their children - including toddler twins Sean and Amelie - while they dined at a nearby tapas bar.

Operation Grange, the inquiry launched in May 2011 to the spiralling £13 million cost to the taxpayer, has failed to unearth any significant new clues despite thousands of potential sightings.

Yesterday a Met Police spokesperson insisted: “We are cracking on.”

But she refused to divulge if a final “last throw of the dice” lead which Sir Bernard said would be investigated last summer has produced a shred of evidence.

He said: “If somebody comes forward and gives us good evidence we will follow it.

"We always say a missing child inquiry is never closed."

The high-profile case is however being wound down and the Home Office has not allocated any extra cash after next month.

A spokesperson said: “Funding will continue until the end of this financial year.

"The resources required will be reviewed again at this point.”

This reads as any excuse by the Sun to rehash the old news tacked on to another story.
