Police have been granted further funds to continue their search for Madeleine McCann, almost 11 years after she went missing.
The Home Office has confirmed the Metropolitan Police will receive more cash to look for the girl, who was aged three when she disappeared from her family’s rented holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on Portugal’s Algarve coast in May 2007.
A spokesman told Sky News: “The Government remains committed to the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann (known as Operation Grange).
“We have briefed the MPS (Metropolitan Police Service) that its application for Special Grant funding for Operation Grange will be granted.”
Funding has been agreed every six months since then, with £154,000 granted from October last year until the end of March, bringing the total spend so far to £11m.
