Shannon-McCann fund link probed

Claims the Madeleine McCann fund was approached for money to assist the search for Shannon Matthews are being investigated, police have said.

It is understood during the time nine-year-old Shannon was missing, the McCann family was asked for money towards helping find the schoolgirl.

One man has been charged with Shannon's abduction. Her mother, Karen Matthews, has also been arrested.

Police have until Wednesday lunchtime to charge or release Ms Mathews.

The Madeleine fund was set up to help in the search for the three-year-old who has not been seen since she went missing in Portugal in May last year.

It is understood one request to the fund was made by a man claiming to be a freelance journalist who was seeking money to help in the search for Shannon.

The Madeleine fund later received a one-line email asking for money, and on another occasion someone claiming to be close to Shannon's mother made a call to representatives of the McCanns.

Thought it was quite interesting that on BBC news it was reported that the police dismissed a link between The Shannon Matthews case and the channel Four programme 'Shameless' and then went on immediately to discuss the Maddie fund..Was this a subtle hint as to what really inspired the Matthews?? :wink:

No, it's more a subtle hint that our media are hypocritical arseholes.
Don't allow the McMedia to keep the public ignorant, download our leaflets now!
