Scotland Yard will "bring their expertise" to the search for missing Madeleine McCann, the Home Office said last night.

The move comes after Kate and Gerry McCann made an impassioned appeal for David Cameron to help them revive the search for their missing daughter.

A Home Office spokesman said: "The Prime Minister and the Home Secretary have agreed with Sir Paul Stephenson that the Metropolitan Police will bring its particular expertise to this case."

The spokesman added the Government hopes Scotland Yard can bring a new perspective to the case and the Home Office will be providing "the necessary financial support".

He went on: "The Government's primary concern has always been and remains the safe return of Madeleine.

"Although she disappeared in Portugal, and the Portuguese retain the lead responsibility in the case, law enforcement agencies here have continued to follow up leads and pass information to the Portuguese authorities as appropriate.

"Clearly, the detail of what that will entail will be a matter of operational judgment and it would not be appropriate to discuss at this stage."

Earlier, Madeleine's parents begged the Prime Minister to call his Portuguese counterpart to discuss launching a formal review of the police investigation into the little girl's disappearance in Portugal more than four years ago.

Speaking at the launch of Mrs McCann's new book, the couple had questioned the strength of ministers' commitment to finding Madeleine, who was eight yesterday.

No details of what Scotland Yard's involvement will entail are being released while the search continues.

Mr and Mrs McCann welcomed the "review" and thanked the Government for committing such a significant resource as the Met to the search for their daughter.

In a statement, they said: "This is clearly a step in the right direction.

"The expertise of the Metropolitan Police is renowned.

"We would like to thank Mr Cameron and the Home Secretary for committing such a significant resource as the Metropolitan Police to begin this review process."
