Big news for those who thought the cops’ specialist food knowledge was donuts and kebabs. Cops making a last-ditch bid to solve the Maddie McCann mystery will spend only THREE DAYS quizzing the Tapas Seven.

Not the Tapas Nine. Not the Sangria Seven.

The detectives are particularly keen to see Dr David Payne, Jane Tanner and her partner Dr Russell O’Brien. Doctors Gerry and Kate, both 39, are not expected to face more questioning.

Doctors. Such are the facts.

The friends deny that their initial statements contain contradictions. But Portuguese police hope that ironing out apparent inconsistencies will help solve the riddle.

THIS IS LONDON: “‘Tapas Nine’ to face three days of police interviews”

Portuguese police are planning to question the so-called Tapas Nine during three days of interviews in a final attempt to solve the mystery of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.

The so-called Tapas Seven.

Mr and Mrs McCann, who are both still official suspects, are not expected to be questioned.”

DAILY MIRROR: “Tapas Seven to be questioned again in Madeleine case”

The Tapas Seven, who had dinner with the McCanns on the night their daughter Madeleine, four, vanished, will have more than 100 questions put to them by Portuguese police.

Any other facts?

A source told Portuguese paper 24 Horas, said: “We are at a crucial phase. There are clear contradictions in the statements that the McCanns and their friends gave. Many things have to be clarified.

“The need to question Madeleine’s parents again will be determined by the results of the interrogations of their holiday friends.”

Or not. Such are the facts.
