Detectives investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have "outstanding work" left to do on the inquiry and may apply for more UK Home Office funding.

In April, then-home secretary Theresa May granted the team £95,000 to keep the investigation going, with the cash expected to last until October.

On Wednesday, Scotland Yard said it would talk to the Home Office about funding.

A force spokesman said: "Whilst there remains outstanding work on this case, the Metropolitan Police Service will remain in dialogue with the Home Office regarding the continuation of funding."
