Maddy search is proving costly

Published 28/10/2013

I HOPE someone can explain why the police are spending £5m of taxpayers' money on the search for Madeleine McCann.

Six years have passed since this tragedy happened and however sad her disappearance was, it seems an inordinate amount to spend on this one inquiry.

Does this indicate that all children who disappear in strange circumstances will have this amount of money spent on efforts to trace them?

Or is it just that the parents of Madeleine McCann have friends in high places?
