Gerry McCann: Madeleine was treated as a commodity by UK Press


Madeleine McCann was treated as a "commodity" by the UK press, her father Gerry has told MPs.

Some reports about the missing girl had been "embellished" or even made up, the culture, media and sport select committee was told.

Papers had, without evidence, published stories suggesting Madeleine was dead, which could have stopped people looking for her, Mr McCann said.

Madeleine, of Rothley, Leicestershire, vanished in Portugal in May 2007.

This happened shortly before her fourth birthday.

Prosecutors initially placed "arguido" - or formal suspect - status on Mr McCann and his wife Kate but this was lifted in July last year when the case was shelved as detectives stopped actively searching for the youngster.
