Madeleine McCann: John Terry, Books And Lawyers

england-maddieMADDIE WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann – Can Madeleine McCann be linked to the latest big news story – John Terry’s alleged shags – and can we find more reason to gawp at Kate and Gerry McCann?

First up the news that John Terry has lost a lawyer to Wayne Bridge. And the Mail wants us to know:

* Angus McBride is a partner of London law firm Kingsley Napley representing Manchester City’s Bridge in the negotiations over his separation from former partner Vanessa Perroncel, whose affair with Terry is now causing so much controversy.

Does he have form?

McBride, whose clients include Madeleine McCann’s parents, is trumpeted as ‘managing and protecting the reputation of individuals subject to either media or criminal investigation’.

Lawyers. Vain and cowardly footballers. Missing innocent children. Make the link.

In other news, The People tells of “agony” for the McCanns:

It’s: “McCanns’ new agony.”

Kate and Gerry McCann face fresh heartache after discovering two books about their daughter Maddie’s disappearance may be published.

May be. Want more facts?

* Tony Bennett, barred by injunction from making allegations in the matter, plans to release The Madeleine Case Files Vol 1. And Stephen Marsden will publish Madeleine McCann: Faked Abduction.

May be published…

Clarence Mitchell, acting for doctors Kate and Gerry McCann, both 41, said: “We will not hesitate to prosecute anyone who defames them.”

Well, yes. The law is the law.

And here’s Kevin Halligen, the tabloids’ “Maddie fraudster” who fingered by the Sun’s man on the scene, who was in actual fact spotted by Christopher Winsley.

* A man accused of conning £300,000 from the Madeleine McCann fund will fight extradition in a separate fraud case. Kevin Halligen, 48, is wanted in the United States after allegedly ripping off an oil company in a £1.2million scam.

His lawyer Mark Summers told City of Westminster magistrates yesterday: “The extradition is contested.” Halligen, who appeared by videolink from prison, was remanded in custody for a further three weeks.

Madeleine McCann is missing…
