An Irish businessman whose firm helped look for Madeleine McCann was yesterday remanded in custody after US authorities launched extradition proceedings over an alleged £1.3m fraud.

Kevin Halligen (48) was due to apply for bail at a hearing at City of Westminster Magistrates Court in London, but did not attend and was not represented by a lawyer.

District Judge Caroline Tubbs remanded Halligen in custody in his absence. A lawyer for the US Government said Halligen was wanted in connection with a "wire fraud and money laundering".
