A MILLIONAIRE British businessman has confirmed that he is providing financial backing to Gerry and Kate McCann.
Brian Kennedy, who owns the Latium Group and rugby union team Sale Sharks, said in a statement: “In light of the quite literally incredible accusations against Gerry and Kate McCann, I felt compelled to offer, along with other like-minded businessmen, financial support and the full logistical support of the Latium team.
“That support is principally our in-house lawyer Ed Smethurst and Clarence Mitchell.
“This will relieve the McCanns of the daily pressure of co-ordinating the legal teams that will expedite the clearing of Gerry and Kate’s names, allowing all parties to refocus on finding Madeleine.”
Cheshire-based Mr Kennedy is estimated to be worth £250m and made his fortune in double glazing and home improvement ventures.
