Metropolitan Police: 'We still have a way to go'

The Metropolitan Police have welcomed the new Portuguese investigation, but warned that there was still "a way to go."

This is a welcome development, but both sides of the investigation are at relatively early stages, with much work remaining to be done. This new momentum is encouraging, but we still have a way to go, and as with all major investigations, not all lines of enquiry that look promising will yield results.
