Madeleine McCann cops ask for extra cash after £12.5m funding runs out

COPS probing Madeleine McCann’s disappearance have asked for more cash.

Their inquiry — Operation Grange — has so far had more than £12.5million from taxpayers.

The Home Office is expected to agree to £350,000 over six months.

Officers are holding three-way talks with German and Portuguese police over prime suspect Christian B, 44.

The Sun revealed this week how German cops have “new information” strengthening their case against the paedophile.

He is currently serving seven years for the rape of a 72-year-old woman in Praia da Luz in 2005.

Madeleine was three when she vanished in 2007 on a family holiday in the Algarve resort.

The Home Office said: “Any requests for funding will be considered as usual in line with our Special Grant process.”
