Man rides 300 miles for Madeleine

A 20-year-old man has cycled almost 300 miles from his home in Northern Ireland to Leicestershire to raise money for the Madeleine McCann fund.

Connor Ward, a technician, travelled from Derry to the missing toddler's home village of Rothley.

He raised hundreds of pounds on the journey which took him more than two days to complete.

The child disappeared from an apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz on 3 May.

Pope meeting

Mr Ward, said: "I think it's important that Madeleine stays in the spotlight until the day she is found. I don't think any of this should fade off.

"At the end of the day she's only four-years-old, she's probably in a foreign place with foreign people she doesn't understand, so this needs to be kept at the front of the papers until this girl is found."

Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann met Pope Benedict after his weekly audience at the Vatican on Wednesday.

The Pope blessed a picture of the child during the meeting.

This week the family also released the last video clips taken of their daughter before her abduction.

Meanwhile, Portuguese police have received hundreds of calls after they released a description of a man seen near the McCanns' holiday flat.

But the family said on Tuesday that police had got a crucial fact wrong in the description of the man.

The height of the man given on the Portuguese press release was 170cm (5ft 7ins) but it mistakenly appeared as 5ft 10ins in the English version.

Spokesman for the McCanns, Clarence Mitchell, said the family were happy that a description had been released but hoped every detail "would be absolutely accurate in every respect".
