Madeleine McCannMadeleine McCann, A donation of £ 3.5 million is being given SPECIAL Scotland Yard to fund research of Madeleine McCann. The Home Office money will fund a team – led by an experienced detective – that is being created in the coming days to carry out a review of all research. It will cover the cost of man-hours, flights to Portugal, hotels, fees forensic consulting firms and other expenses. There will be a heavy cost for the work of translating thousands of documents requested by the Portuguese authorities. The London team will also examine files Leicestershire Police -said by police sources to be “substantial”. Leicestershire has been the binding force of the United Kingdom for the McCann family and officers posted to Portugal during the chase.

The funding comes after Kate and Gerry McCann made an impassioned appeal to David Cameron to help find her daughter, who were three when she disappeared in Portugal in 2007. The Prime Minister, who met the couple 18 months ago, while in opposition, has already written to say he had personally authorized the review.

A police source said: “The money is clearly delimited and emergency assistance to one side by the Ministry of Interior.

“It will be made available specifically for the Metropolitan Police to review the case of Madeleine McCann.”

The insider said the task was “enormous” and could take years.

The McCanns, who believe that the Portuguese police frustrated the investigation, said: “This is a step in the right direction.

“The experience of the Metropolitan Police is known and we are reassured by the commitment of our Government to the search for Madeleine.”

The couple has written a book, simply titled Madeleine, who hopes to raise funds for the police investigation.
