DNA in hire car 'from McCann twins'

Efforts to clear the parents of Madeleine McCann of any suspicion are being stepped up amid expectations of fresh police questioning.

As Portuguese detectives reportedly flew in to the UK with a list of fresh questions for Kate and Gerry McCann, friends of the couple gave the first outline of their possible defence.

Sources close to the family insist much of the police's evidence - including the collection of Madeleine's DNA from the family's hire car in Praia da Luz - can be easily explained.

The car was used to transport much of the youngster's items when the family moved to a new apartment some time after her disappearance from their original holiday let in Praia Da Luz on May 3.

Items said to have been carried include nappies worn by her twin brother and sister Sean and Amelia who have similar DNA, the Sun reported.

Madeleine's own sandals are also believed to have been transported in the car - potentially allowing DNA from sweat to be transferred.

A source close to the couple said the vehicle had also been used by a number of people, including several family members, before it was examined.

Three Portuguese officers are reported to have arrived in Britain ahead of a fresh interrogation of the McCanns.

The couple, both 39, returned to their home in Rothley, Leicestershire, last week after spending four months in Portugal awaiting developments.

The newspaper said the officers wanted Leicestershire Police to put the questions to the McCanns, who have been declared official suspects in the case although they deny any involvement in her disappearance or death.
