The parents of Madeleine McCann have spoken of the hurt caused by fake news and how they are now trying to protect their 12-year-old twins from online abuse.

In a moving interview to mark the tenth anniversary of the disappearance, Kate and Gerry McCann also tell of a new normality of adjusting to life after so long without their eldest child.

The McCanns also disclose they are taking their legal battle with the former Portuguese detective Goncalo Amaral to the European courts after a judgment that ruled in his favour.

Madeleine was three when she vanished from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve on May 3, 2007.

In their interview with the BBC's Fiona Bruce, Mrs McCann said they would do "whatever it takes for as long as it takes" to find their daughter.

Of the anniversary, she said: "I never thought we'd still be in this situation, so far along the line. It's a huge amount of time. In some ways it feels like it was only a few weeks ago, in other times it has felt really long. But it's a hard marker of time. It's time we should have had with Madeleine. We should have been a family of five for all that time. It just feels stolen."

Asked about the postings on the internet, Mrs McCann said they did their best to avoid social media.

But she said she was anxious for their children Sean and Amelie, who were two at the time, but are now beginning to use social media themselves.

"Our worry is for our children," said Mrs McCann, 49, a former GP, who disclosed she has started working again in medicine but not as a general practitioner.

"I think we've tried to educate them a little bit as well because obviously it's not just us that has fallen victim to the downside of social media."

Of the postings, she said: "I think it has been shocking... that aspect of human nature that I hadn't really encountered before. It's been striking and quite hard really to get your head round. Because why would somebody write that? Why would somebody add to someone's upset, why would someone in a position of ignorance do something like that?"

Mr McCann, 48, a cardiologist, added: "I don't want to dwell on the negative aspects too long, but I think in this era of fake news, it is extremely topical and I think people just need to think twice before what they write and the effects it has.

"Certainly I know ourselves with our own experience, both in the mainstream media and also on the internet, we just say I am not going to believe that until I see evidence of it.

"I'm sure it is a very small minority of people who spend their time doing it, but it has totally inhibited what we do. Personally, we don't use social media, although we have used it in Madeleine's campaign. But for our twins who are growing up in an era where mobile technology is used all the time, we don't want them not to be able to use it in the same way that their peers do."

The couple, from Rothley in Leicestershire, lamented that they had only been able to enjoy their "little perfect nuclear family of five" for such a short period of time.

Mr McCann, acknowledging the passing of time, said: "You adapt and you have a new normality. And unfortunately for us a new normality is a family of four.

"The last five years in particular has allowed us to really properly devote time to looking after the twins and ourselves and of course carrying on with our work.

"At some point you've got to realise that time is not frozen and I think both of us realise that we owed it to the twins to make sure that their life is as fulfilling as they deserve, and we have certainly tried our best to achieve that."

The couple's misery was compounded by finding themselves accused by the Portuguese police of being implicated in the disappearance.

Although they have been formally cleared by both Portuguese and British police for almost a decade, they remain locked in a legal battle with Amaral, who was sacked from the case but wrote a book about it.

The McCanns successfully sued Amaral for libel but the ex-detective won the latest round of the bitter dispute in the Portuguese supreme court.

Mr McCann said they would take the case to Europe because "the last judgment is terrible", adding: "We've got to challenge it, and we will do."

Mrs McCann said: "I find it all incomprehensible to be honest. It has been very upsetting, and it has caused a lot of frustration and anger which is a real negative emotion.

"I just have to hope that in the long run that justice will prevail."

A great many people saw that piece of sh*t hatertroll and Gonzo-worshipper that stalked the McCann family into a restaurant, took their photo - including the twins - and posted the picture on social media for all its sicko chums to mock and jeer at.

These wretches are nothing but gutter trash. And each and every one of them hates the twins just as much as they do anyone in the McCann family.

They'd attack Madeleine herself if she was found tomorrow.

Oh, and I hope the Gonzo Cult realise that today's statement by the Deputy Head of the PJ reveals that every single word that has come out of Gonzo's mouth for the last ten years has been a lie?

Quote:

But Twitter, Facebook and whacko websites are infected by conspiracy theorists with “proof” Madeleine’s parents killed her. Sick lies.

Kate and Gerry have tried to shield the twins, but trolls tarnishing the memory of a missing child need to be shut down.

Because Sean and Amelie, robbed of their big sister, don’t deserve to suffer for decades to come.


And every single one of the hater trolls is helping to protect child-abducting scum.

Well worth a read:

Some took to “trolling” the couple online; this year, psychologist Dr John Synott conducted a study into the phenomenon and found up to 150 tweets about the couple are posted every day. “This has gone on for ten years, and you cannot see it ever ending. That is the legacy of the McCann case,” Synott said.

Others took on the role of amateur sleuths. Whole websites and forums were dedicated to examining angles the police might have missed. Using jargon picked up on TV crime series, these bedsit detectives pored over timelines, windows of opportunity, alleged discrepancies in witness statements and key forensic evidence. A few invited online visitors to vote on their favourite theory. Was Maddie: a) abducted by a trafficker; b) abducted by a paedophile or c) the victim of a botched burglary. Is she: a) dead or b) alive? A child’s life reduced to an internet poll.

Was it the hounders that had that online poll, as if Madeleine's abduction was some kind of reality TV show for their entertainment?
