FERGUS SHANAHAN: “SWOOP FOR MADDIE”

“I tried to imagine the misery Kate and Gerry McCann must be going through with these Maddie sightings. It’s too awful.”

See the Sun’s front-page Maddie update in which she is served an ice-cream in Brussels. Shanahan is the paper’s deputy editor. It’s too awful…

“They must cling to any hope. But some of the latest rash of ‘sightings’ are based on thin detail.”

The ice-cream was chocolate.

“Sadly, the Maddie tragedy is attracting its fair-share of attention seekers”

The Sun’s front page says the ice-cream was cold and sweet – just how Maddie likes them!

“It seems unlikely that Europe’s most instantly recognisable child would be walked through city streets by her abductors.”

More likely she’d stop and be bought an ice cream…

“But if convincing reports of sightings continue, Scotland Yard should set up a Maddie squad capable of moving instantly anywhere in Europe.”

On the Sun’s word…
