THE man accused of abducting and imprisoning Shannon Matthews left a police station hiding under a cop's coat yesterday after seven hours of questioning.

Mike Donovan, 39, along with Shannon's mum, Karen, 32, and stepdad Craig Meehan, 22, were taken from prison to separate police stations.

They spent between 10.30am and 5.30pm being quizzed about Shannon's alleged abduction eight weeks ago.

Craig Meehan grilled on Shannon's abduction

Donovan, Meehan's uncle, was taken to Huddersfield police station, West Yorks, from Doncaster jail.

He was smuggled in and out under a blue coat, but could be seen wearing purple tracksuit bottoms and blue and white trainers.

Accused ... Mike Donovan

The questioning is described as "unusual" because both Donovan and Matthews have already been charged in connection with Shannon's disappearance.

Meehan ' not charged over her alleged abduction ' is accused of child porn offences after police found indecent images on his computer in Dewsbury, West Yorks.

All three were taken back to jail on suicide watch ' Matthews to New Hall near Wakefield and Meehan to Armley, Leeds.


It is understood the interviews were carried out to cross-check previous statements.

Donovan is accused of abducting and falsely imprisoning Shannon, nine.

Matthews ' a mother of seven by five fathers ' is charged with perverting justice by concealing her whereabouts, and child neglect. They are due for trial in November at Leeds Crown Court.

Shannon vanished on her way home from school in Dewsbury Moor, West Yorkshire on February 19. She was rescued by police who broke into a flat a mile away 24 days later.

Meehan is due to appear before magistrates in Dewsbury today on 11 charges of possessing child porn.
