A little girl's body found in a suitcase in Australia is not missing Madeleine McCann.

Police confirmed she had been "totally excluded" as a potential victim along with 42 other missing children.

The decomposed body is that of a fair-haired girl aged between two and four, who was killed at another location in at least 2007.

Blonde Madeleine was three years old when she went missing from the family's holiday apartment in Portugal's Algarve on May 3 2007.

South Australia Police Detective Superintendent Des Bray said: "I can confirm that Madeleine McCann has been totally excluded as a potential victim and UK police have been advised."
