The parents of Madeleine McCann have spoken today ahead the fifth anniversary of her disappearance.

3-year-old Madeleine went missing whilst on holiday in Portugal in 2007. Last week Scotland Yard urged the Portuguese authorities to reopen the search for her, saying they had almost 200 leads in the case.

The detective leading the Metropolitan Police review said the case could still be solved before officers released a picture of what she might now look like as a nine-year-old.
