THE SUN front page: “BRIT LAB BOMBSHELL CAR DNA IS 100% MADDIE’S. Cops also tapped McCann phones and email.”

The Forensic Science Service in Birmingham matched 20 out of 20 genetic markers to a samples of blood found in the boot of the McCanns’ car.

“Police listen to McCanns’ every word” and we watch their every movement on the TV.

Page 6: “NEW AGONY FOR McCANNS COUPLE FACE TWINS BEING TAKEN AWAY. Social workers may put them in care.”

This may well be the same new agony as the one yesterday when Sun readers learned: “YOU’LL LOSE THE TWINS.”

DAILY MIRROR front page: “She lost a police dossier asks prosecutors to charge her with ACCIDENTAL HOMICIDE.”

Pages 4 and 5 for the “FULL STORY”. Readers see “THE MADDY FILE”.

A DCI Kirkham considers the evidence:

  • DCI Kirkham says Madeleine could have “grazed herself” and so left blood marks on the wall of the family apartment.
  • DCI Kirkham says “children can fall over and bump themselves”.
  • DCI Kirkham says “To find a body in any murder is absolutely crucial” because without it there is no conclusive proof that murder has taken place, n’est pas?

Pages 6 and 7: “ARE YOUR TWINS AT RISK? ..IS YOUR SAFETY AT RISK?” Police warn of “hate reprisals” against the McCanns.


Pages 2 and 3 The “WORLD’S GREATEST NEWSPAPER has opened the phone lines to the question “Were Madeleine’s parents involved in her death?” Portuguese police and anti-paedo protestors await the result with a keen interest.

Pages 4 and 5: “Pressure mounts on social workers to remove twins.”

“McCanns’ happy family image comes under fire” The Express looks at the Portuguese press and hears Madeleine “screaming for her daddy”. Correio da Manha says Kate McCann had “moments of aggressiveness” towards Madeleine. It says that Gerry McCann was “often absent” from the family group.
