Kate McCann hopes Leveson Report will mark a new era
The mother of missing Madeleine McCann hopes the Leveson Report into the ethics and standards of the Press will mark a new era in which people in the news are treated "responsibly, with care and consideration".
Kate McCann, whose daughter went missing when the family was on holiday in Portugal in 2007, was in London yesterday for the publication of the document.
The report, the result of an inquiry by Lord Justice Leveson, said the Press should be governed by an independent regulatory body, backed by legislation.
Mrs McCann, of Rothley,who gave evidence to the inquiry, said: "I hope the Prime Minister, and all the party leaders, will embrace the report and act swiftly to ensure activation of Lord Leveson's recommendations within an acceptable and clearly defined time-scale.

"I truly hope it will lead to an historic and, more importantly, crucial achievement for all in our society."
Yesterday's report described how Mrs McCann and her husband, Gerry, although initially given favourable coverage in the media, were treated like a commodity, and "little or no regard" was given to their "personal distress".
