MADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann, Kate McCann and Gerry McCann

DAILY MAIL: “Holiday apartment where Madeleine McCann went missing goes on sale for £250,000”

The infamous holiday flat where Madeleine McCann vanished has been put up for sale for £250,000.

Can a flat be “infamous”? It was the flat wot dunnit?

Potential buyers could begin viewing the flat from as early as next week, raising the possibility of voyeurs keen to see where the three-year-old disappeared looking round.

Dreadful. Better to just look around the property on the Mail’s website.

Flat 5A at the Ocean Club holiday complex has two bedrooms, measures 90 metres squared and is 20 years old. It is 500 metres from the beach.

Compact. Bijou. And handy for an abduction, allegedly… Does Our Maddie make it more or less valuable?

According to the newspaper 24 Horas, the price of the property is ‘substantially higher than others with similar characteristics’ also on sale in the resort.

Another apartment just one minute from the beach is currently on sale for less than half the price at £103,000 (127,500 Euros).

Speculation, Speculation. Speculation. ‘Tis the property developer’s mantra…

The SUN: “Maddie flat goes up for sale”

A source at the estate agent said: “We should have the key by the end of this week.”

Can’t wait…

Anyone know a decent estate agent?

DAILY TELEGRAPH: “’Madeleine McCann holiday apartment up for sale’”

The holiday apartment in the Algarve where Madeleine McCann vanished 16 months ago has reportedly been put up for sale.

Great. I’ve already bought 10 Rillington Place and 23 Cranley Gardens…

Now Liverpuddlian Ruth McCann – who is no relation to Madeleine – is said to be keen to sell and the property is on the market for £250,000. The retired teacher has handed over the keys to a local estate agent and potential buyers are expected to start viewing next week, according to the Portuguese newspaper 24 Horas.

What of the property?

Madeleine was sleeping in one of the bedrooms with her younger twin siblings Sean and Amelie when she went missing on May 3 last year.

I’ll take it…
