Invented story, to cover up what is really happening.
We know, because we can observe
They are NOT looking for Madeleine - Alive
They are NOT looking for Madeleine - Dead
They are NOT interviewing suspects in Portugal
They are NOT interviewing suspects in England
They are NOT interviewing witnesses in Portugal
They are NOT interviewing witnesses in England
Clarence Mitchell is still their spokesman, despite the report that he had been dismissed. That was clearly a Lie.
Operation Grange is NOT telling anyone anything.
BUT Grange would have had to submit a hefty report, with details of what they have done so far
and details of what they are intending to do in the next 6 months to get any further funding at all, from anyone.
The Met is on its knees for funding. C-Dick said so when she was announced as the new Commissioner.
The Home Office is under huge pressure to increase funding for policing and Prisons,
That report from Nicola Wall must have been an absolute belter !

From twitter: "£85k has just bought the UK Government another 6 months of refusing FOI requests on the grounds of an ongoing investigation."
And here, Clarence's lie is exposed, so why does he do it?:
A Met Police spokesperson confirmed the Home Office had approved the extra funding to continue inquiries for another six months. But he refused to say if they were now trying to quiz one final Portuguese suspect, simply saying: 'We are cracking on. The Operation Grange team are not prepared to discuss any lines of inquiry while the investigation is ongoing.'
