Ghislaine Maxwell has lost a desperate last-minute appeal to stop “embarrassing” confidential documents from being released. US District Judge Loretta Preska confirmed her ruling that the files must be unsealed and released to the public, despite Ms Maxwell’s lawyers' “extraordinary request” for her to reconsider. The British socialite, 58, had tried to argue that the government wrongfully used depositions filed in her civil lawsuit to bring criminal charges. She is currently answering a number of suits brought by victims of associate Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier found dead in his prison cell last year. Her lawyers charged on Wednesday that prosecutors in a separate criminal case used confidential depositions she made in 2016 in the civil case that is now being consideration by Judge Preska. The defamation suit was filed in 2015 by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who alleges she was abused by Epstein and pimped out to powerful figures including Prince Andrew, and confidentially settled in 2017. The Duke of York has denied all allegations.

German police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have discovered a sealed-off cellar after excavating an allotment site just outside Hannover. Witnesses said on Wednesday they had watched as the BKA, the German federal investigators, lifted off a cement block covering the basement during the first day of digging at the council-owned site. After discovering the underground cellar, officers led in a sniffer dog which barked when it entered, The Telegraph can reveal. "The sniffer dogs were barking quite a lot in the morning," said one person present. Authorities began searching the site on Tuesday in connection with the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine. German police believe she is dead. The Braunschweig prosecution office, co-ordinating the investigation, confirmed to The Telegraph on Monday night that the operation at the garden had been completed. Spokeswoman Julia Meyer would not comment on whether any evidence had been found.
