Dr Graham Hill

It's a case that has divided opinion over the past decade and the news that police searching for missing Madeleine McCann are getting another £85,000 to extend the investigation by another six months has ignited even further comment.

Over £11 million of taxpayers' money has now been spent trying to find Maddy - who was three when she went missing during a family holiday in Portugal in 2007 - but does the most recent extension mean there's been a significant development?

We spoke to criminologist Dr Graham Hill, who worked on the original investigation after the little girl's disappearance and he thinks the McCanns are right to carry on trying to find out what happened to their daughter.

However, former Metropolitan Police senior detective Sue Hill, who has worked on dozens of missing child cases, disagreed, saying: "Sometimes you just have to put sentiment to one side and say enough is enough".
