Nick Ferrari : What have 1338 statements, 1027 exhibits, 60 persons of interest having been investigated, 8685 potential sightings, 560 lines of enquiry, 30 requests made to other countries asking for work to be done, and 29 detectives given you ?
Well it's the investigation as to what happened to Madeleine McCann and now as you have already heard on the News the 10 million pounds enquiry, the 10 million pounds enquiry will be phased down from 29 officers working on Operation Grange, as it's known, to it says here just 4, it's still a lot... This as, I remind you, we are told that Police now won't be coming out in some areas, won't be coming out to burglaries, could you possibly email the details in, they stole my laptop, oh shame isn't it, also routine patrols, there's no future in routine patrols, you don't catch criminals, you really don't need them. But if it comes to nicking Sun journalist 15 million pounds, one conviction that's under appeal, 29 to 1, if you are a football manager by the way imagine running a team, you play 30 games you lost 29 you won one or maybe drew because it's still going before a panel, do you think you would keep your job, no, me neither. 29 detectives looking for Madeleine McCann, does it need a couple of blokes on it ? Yes it probably does, because the McCanns ran a very successful media campaign, it engendered quite rightly in probably global certainly nationwide sympathy, we would all love somehow find the little girl is wandering around Algeria and is going to be reunited with her parents that really would be a story with a happy ending. Sadly, if we are realistic, you and I, I think, probably know and fear which way this is going to go ultimately, so who on earth authorised 29 men and women to do all this work ?
Andy Trotter is former deputy assistant commissioner at Scotland Yard and joins me now. Mr. Trotter, how is it determined how many detectives or officers are put on a certain case ? Good morning !
