Pervert: I didn't kill Maddie

A convicted paedophile with West Yorkshire links has denied any involvement in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Raymond Hewlett, who is originally from Todmorden, was jailed for a number of sex attacks on children in the 1970s in Yorkshire and Wales. He has recently been named in connection with the Madeleine case, and was interviewed earlier this month by the head of West Yorkshire's CID in connection with another unsolved abduction and assault in 1975.

Hewlett, who is now 64 and dying of cancer, came to the attention of two private investigators looking into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann from a holiday apartment in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz in 2007.

It is claimed he was camping an hour's drive away at the time. In an interview with a national newspaper at the weekend, he said: "I didn't kill the McCann girl. They can all think what they like. The only time I've seen Madeleine McCann is on missing posters. I'd take a lie detector test."

He claimed he was 60 miles away from the resort where Madeleine disappeared at the time of her vanishing and insisted he has not been in the area since 2002.
