A solicitor with a heart

“An East Lancashire solicitor is leading a private investigation into Madeleine McCann's disappearance - on behalf of her parents. Edward Smethurst is the in-house lawyer based in Clitheroe for double-glazing tycoon Brian Kennedy, who has pledged to bankroll Gerry and Kate McCann's legal and media costs (…) Mr Smethurst is also running a team of private investigators who are tracking Madeleine's disappearance throughout Spain and Portugal (…) He is also ambassador of Cancer Research UK and recently mounted a legal challenge to stop the controversial £50 million wind farm development at Scout Moor, Edenfield.”
