Madeleine: Sky news gives up

By Steve Bennedik, Editor Sky News Networked Media

We hope you find our newly designed site an improvement.

The aim is to break up the bottom of our home page and each section, not only making it look more attractive but to offer a wider range of content.


There's one other change you may already have noticed. We've removed the heading "Madeleine" from the navigation list on the left-hand side of the page.

It doesn't mean we won't report on any new developments - and if you've added our Madeleine page to your favourites or made it your home page, you can continue to use it.

Our move is simply a recognition that seven months after she went missing, Madeleine's story is no longer dominating the news in the way it was, and we can no longer justify its prominence.

I know this will be disappointing for many of you, while the search for Madeleine remains unresolved. But I hope you understand why we've made this decision.


Thanks for continuing to use Sky News online.

"An interesting choice of phrase there - "we can no longer justify its prominence". I'm not entirely sure they could ever actually justify placing the story of one missing child out of hundreds of missing children as being more important than 'World News'."
