An Irishman hired to help find Madeleine McCann has been remanded in custody after US authorities launched an extradition bid over an alleged '1.3million fraud. Kevin Halligen, 48, was due to apply for bail at a London court hearing yesterday but did not attend.

US lawyers told the sitting how the Dubliner is wanted in connection with "wire fraud and money laundering". He was arrested last month while hiding out in England under a fake name. Halligen allegedly blew around '330,000 paid to his firm from the Maddie McCann fund.
