Madeleine McCann: Leicestershire Police, Jet Trips And Maddie Cops

by | 26th, April 2010

MADELEINE McCann has not been in the news much of late. But the Mirror can now report that “Maddy cops £22K bill for 196 jet trips”.

Yep, just over £112 for each flight, or jet trip, as the Mirror calls travelling by air. Nto much when you look at like that. But, still, where did the “Maddie cops” fly and what did they discover?

The flights were taken to Portugal by Leicestershire Constabulary from May 2007 to July 2008. The exact cost was £22,055.

The force said:

“Officers used budget airlines.”

Well, yes. and good that they British police took the time and trouble to help in the search for a missing British national. Will they now do the same for all Brits who go missing overseas, or is the media’s Our Maddie a special case?

Revealed under the Freedom of Information Act, the total cost of the first year of the probe to the force was £500,000, most of which will be met by the Home Office.

You can’t put a price on a child…

The search for Shannon Matthews is estimated to have cost the taxpayer £5million.

And Shannon was under the uncle’s bed.

The search for Madeleine McCann has not cost the taxpayer much at all.
