McCanns' grief 'multiplied 100 times' by cop's book

The McCanns' pain over the disappearance of their daughter was "multiplied 100 times" by a book by a former Portuguese police chief, a court has heard.

Gerry McCann's sister Trish Cameron said he and wife Kate had been "demonised" and "vilified" by the disappearance of Madeleine and claims that they were somehow involved.
