    Police have re-opened their probe into the disappearance of British girl Madeleine McCann, it’s emerged.

    The youngster disappeared in May 2007, aged three, in the resort of Praia da Luz, Portugal.

    Portugal’s attorney general said police had asked the investigation to be re-opened because of “reports of new elements”.

    Portuguese police closed the case in 2008, after more than a year of investigations, including the quizzing of Madeleine’s parents.

    UK police reviewed the case in 2011 and opened a formal investigation in July.

    Last week, British police received more than 2,400 calls and e-mails following the broadcast of a fresh appeal across Europe.
