Madeleine McCann's parents have issued a stark ultimatum to the Portuguese authorities, telling them to "put up or shut up".

Now it appears that the McCanns have had enough and are challenging the authorities. A source close to their legal team said: "The ball is back with the Portuguese police. They need to put up or shut up. We feel that the judge has said to the police that they need to go away and find some more evidence if we're going to take it any further. They need to back up what they're claiming or stop."
