Sky News apologises after Prince Andrew shown during Madeleine McCann prime suspect clip

SKY News has apologised after a video of Prince Andrew was accidentally shown during a segment on the Madeleine McCann prime suspect.

During last night's broadcast, TV host Dermot Murnaghan introduced the bulletin's top story about the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance.

He told viewers: "We have actual evidence Madeleine McCann is dead. German prosecutors reveal more on their investigation into the suspect, Christian B."

In the unfortunate mix-up, Sky News then aired a video of Prince Andrew in conservation with another man who had his back to the camera.

Sky News later issued an apology for the blunder.

Murnaghan, who looked rather startled, said: "Now in the headlines at the start of this hour, we featured headlines in the wrong order.

"We included a picture of Prince Andrew in the headline about the investigation into Christian B, the German suspect in the Madeleine McCann.

"We apologise for this mistake."

It comes as a German prosecutor yesterday said there is "some evidence" that Madeleine was killed by the new suspect in the case but not enough to bring him to trial.

Hans Christian Wolters, the Braunschweig state prosecutor, said police needed more information about where Christian B had lived so police could search for Madeleine's body.

Mr Wolters told Sky News: "The hard evidence we don't have, we don't have the crucial evidence of Madeleine McCann's body.

"We expect that she is dead, but we don't have enough evidence that we can get a warrant for our suspect in Germany for the murder of Madeleine McCann.

"At the moment, we also don't have enough proof for a trial at court, but we have some evidence that the suspect has done the deed.

"That's why we need more information from people, especially places he has lived, so we can target these places especially and search there for Madeleine."

Christian B is known to have lived on the Algarve coast and his Portuguese mobile phone received a half-hour phone call in Praia da Luz around an hour before Madeleine, then three, went missing on May 3 2007.

Madeleine vanished shortly before her fourth birthday, while her parents were eating dinner with friends at a nearby tapas restaurant, and would have turned 17 last month.
