Not in my name:

A drug user who carried out a fake door-to-door collection for missing Madeleine McCann to fund her habit has been jailed for 90 days.

Heroin addict Debbie Clifton, 33, formerly of Boswell Road, Chadsmoor, called at the home of an 83-year-old woman on June 2 and asked for a donation for Madeleine’s Fund. She was given £2.70 in loose change.

Yes, £2.70.

John Peel, prosecuting at Cannock Magistrates’ Court, said Clifton then called without success at several other addresses.

Still £2.70.

Never again:

Worried parents will be able to monitor the movements of their children via a satellite tracking device.

The device – which can be carried in a rucksack – allows parents back at home to pinpoint exactly where their child is when they step out.

It lets them to watch satellite images on their computer of the area where their child is and the route they are taking.

Including a panic button and mobile phone, it also allows a child to send an SOS text message to their parent’s mobile phone if they get into trouble.

Not with Gordon Brown on the case:

Mr Brown said: “I have talked to Madeleine McCann’s parents. I have heard from them their appreciation of the work that has been done in this investigation.

“Obviously there are issues they want to be assured about and I have raised these with the Portuguese Prime Minister.

“He has assured me that everything that can be done will be done and obviously we look for progress in something that’s heart-rending in its sadness, that a young child can be separated from her parents for so long.”

Mr Socrates said: “It’s important for Great Britain but it’s important for Portugal, and it’s very touching in public opinion in Great Britain but also in Portugal.

“We have dedicated to this investigation all the resources we have in order to give it high priority and we are doing our best. Everyone in Portugal and the family knows we are doing our best.”

Madeleine McCann is still missing…
