Life after Madeleine McCann

Remember Clarence Mitchell?

The former BBC journalist and spokesman for the parents of Madeleine McCann has developed a nice little niche as a spin doctor of misery.

First he took on Fiona MacKeown, the mother of the teenager Scarlet Kelling, who was murdered in Goa. Then he started representing the parents of murdered London teenager Jimmy Mizen. And today we’ve discovered that Mr Mitchell is also speaking for the wife of Jeremy Hoyland the British jet skier who went missing off the coast of Bali last October.

Mr Mitchell is not charging for his services. But his presence can hardly be reassuring – the PR equivalent of an angel of death.
