What is their response to the film?

The McCanns have slammed the documentary as they believe it will "hinder" the ongoing police investigation.

As the Independent reports, McCann said at a statement: “We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine’s disappearance".

“The production company told us that they were making the documentary and asked us to participate.“We did not see – and still do not see – how this programme will help the search for Madeleine and, particularly given there is an active police investigation, it could potentially hinder it.

“Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme. We will not be making any further statements or giving interviews regarding this programme.”
