Scotland Yard has provided information about an alleged paedophile prompting police to expand investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
The British toddler disappeared from her hotel room in the Praia da Luz resort, Portugal, in May 2007.
British police launched their own investigation but failed to make progress.
Scotland Yard is following up leads in the disappearance of Madeleine.
The investigation continues, as Madeleine turned 16 this month on the 12th anniversary of her disappearance.
There has been renewed interest in the case following an eight-part documentary series on Netflix.
Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann have said they will never give up the search for their daughter.
They condemned the Netflix series, critics called it “exploitative”.
