Police officers from Scotland Yard have attended a "secret" meeting in Lisbon with their Portuguese and German counterparts to work out where Madeleine McCann could be buried, reports claim. The forces met to pore over the details of suspect Christian Brückner's life in the Algarve at around the time when Madeleine went missing, with reports suggesting German police may travel to Praia da Luz for "one last roll of the dice" in their investigation. According to the Portuguese daily Correio da Manha, the meeting took place "recently" at the Lisbon HQ of the Policia Judiciaria. "Wells and ditches have been looked at with a fine-tooth comb, but no signs of the remains of the missing girl have been found," the Portuguese officers are said to have told British police. The abandoned wells are a 15-minute drive from Brückner's rented cottage on the outskirts of Praia de Luz, on a narrow road leading down to a beach where the he used to park his VW camper van.

A married police officer has been acquitted of murdering his long-term lover after she revealed their affair to his wife. A jury took just under three hours to find Timothy Brehmer, 41, not guilty of murdering mother-of-two Claire Parry.

The police officer, who served with Dorset Police, will be sentenced at Salisbury Crown Court by Mr Justice Jacobs later on Wednesday. Mrs Parry died during a "kerfuffle" in his car at a car park of the Horns Inn in West Parley, Dorset, on May 9 this year. The court heard that while the pair were in the car, Mrs Parry had taken Brehmer's phone and sent a message to his wife saying: "I am cheating on you."

Among them was a family that had driven for five hours from their home in Sussex, only to be stopped by officers in Carmarthenshire. When questioned, the family admitted they were travelling for non-essential reasons, and were escorted back to the border by the police. Other cases include a man from Rotherham in Yorkshire, who told officers he had broken the lockdown rules because he wanted to “climb Mount Snowdon alone”. He was instructed to leave North Wales immediately. Since the 'fire break' lockdown was introduced on Friday, all non-essential travel in Wales is now prohibited, and land borders are closed. The Welsh Government advises that those caught breaking the new laws may have to pay a fixed penalty of £60 – rising to £120 for a second breach – and face criminal proceedings.
