McCanns in Portugal for book ban appeal


Madeleine McCann's parents have arrived in Portugal as an ex-detective involved in the hunt for their daughter attempts to overturn a court's ban on his book.

Gerry and Kate McCann say Goncalo Amaral's publication defamed them and discourages their ongoing inquiry.

Their daughter was nearly four when she went missing from an Algarve holiday flat on 3 May 2007.

In September 2009, a Portuguese injunction banned sales and further publication of the book.
