Plan to cash in on Madeleine case

The boozy detective sacked from the Madeleine McCann inquiry is to publish a book about the case.

Her parents have branded the move "despicable".

Goncalo Amaral, 48, spent five months in charge of the inquiry into Madeleine's disappearance in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on May 3 last year, two days before her fourth birthday.

He was sacked after criticising British police, claiming they were too sympathetic towards Madeleine's parents Gerry, 39, and Kate, 40.

Amaral was also overheard openly discussing the evidence during a boozy lunch.

He has now written his own account of the case under the title True Lies. The McCanns were said to be "horrified".

Their spokesman Clarence Mitchell warned: "Kate and Gerry's lawyers will be among the first to study this book."
