Kate McCann: Is it payout time again to top up the dwindling mortgage fund?


Kate McCann was last night said to be devastated by the unauthorised publication of her diary in a downmarket Sunday newspaper.

Her diary was seized and photocopied by Portuguese police three months after daughter Madeleine, then three, vanished.

Extracts appeared in the paper without Kate or hubby Gerry's prior knowledge or permission last weekend. A pal said last night: "Kate is angry and upset.

"She is furious her innermost feelings have been revealed. Worse still, it looks as if she has consented."

Because of its sensitive nature, the material was not included in 19 files made public by prosecutors.

The friend added: "The suspicion is these diaries have been leaked by someone in the Portuguese authorities."

Lawyers for the McCanns are thought to be demanding an apology and payout for the Find Madeleine fund. The McCanns will not comment.
