Jane Tanner said “she cannot be sure she would recognise the man again”

According to the News of the World from today, January 20, 2008, Jane Tanner confirmed the likeness” between the sketch of a suspect, based on information given by a holidaymaker who saw a “creepy man” near the McCann’s apartment, and the man she saw on the night Madeleine vanished.

But according to the Daily Mail of October 28, 2007, “the key witness in the hunt for Madeleine McCann has admitted she would not recognise the man she says abducted the four-year-old.” The story follows on: "She just cannot be sure she would recognise the man again if she saw him because she only got a fleeting glimpse of him. Jane has been asked if the man could have been Robert Murat, because the man was walking in the direction of his home, but there's no way she could know that."
