British officers back for third day of Madeleine search

British police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have arrived for the third day of searches at a site in southern Portugal.

The Metropolitan Police officers were accompanied by Portuguese officers to an area of scrubland in Praia da Luz, close to where the toddler disappeared in May 2007.

They were joined by local forestry workers using strimmers to clear some of the undergrowth covering the site.
