Netflix is releasing a controversial series on the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

After months of wrangling, including being criticised by the youngster's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, the series is being released tomorrow.

Netflix has said the series will be a "detailed look" at the disappearance of the three-year-old, who vanished from the resort of Praia da Luz in Portugal in May 2007 while on holiday with her family.

Kate and Gerry McCann have previously criticised the programme, saying it "could potentially hinder" the search for their daughter.

Netflix said the series had access to "never-before-heard testimonies from those at the heart of the story, including friends of the McCann family, investigators working the case and from those who became the subject of media speculation and rumour".

The streaming service added that "The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann goes beyond the headlines and takes a unique look at the facts of the case as well as its impact on media standards around the world".

There has been a series delays stemming from opposition to the programme, which was first commissioned back in 2017.
