Portuguese police are set to fly to the UK on April 7 in a bid to solve the Madeleine McCann mystery.

Detectives have agreed the date with British police and are prepared to spend up to two months in Britain.

But Portuguese public prosecutors have rejected police requests to quiz Kate and Gerry McCann again.

The seven members of the "Tapas Nine", who were dining with the McCanns when Madeleine disappeared last May, will be re-interviewed.

Detectives are thought to be particularly keen to question David Payne, who was the last person outside the McCann family to see Madeleine, Jane Tanner and her partner Russell O'Brien.

The McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell said the friends are keen to help police understand their original statements as soon as possible.
