Investigators are being urged to take "all the appropriate steps" to review the case of an Irish woman who was raped in Portugal in 2004 after she said she believes the new suspect linked to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann could be her attacker.

Hazel Behan, who is originally from Dublin and now lives in Westmeath with her family, was working as a holiday representative in Praia da Rocha when she was viciously assaulted in June 2004, two weeks before her 21st birthday.
