The Sun finds a Maddie-Britney link

Why, it's like a sign of the universe collapsing in on itself - with a little bit of squeezing, The Sun has found a story which combines last year's obsession, the disappearance of Madeleine McCann with the current fixation on Britney Spears' mental health. The paper trumpets:

Maddie resort 'perv' snaps Brit

Although the facts are somewhat looser: the photographer, Christian Ridout - who has been working as Dexter Troy - was only very tangentially connected to the McCann case, having been accused of grooming a much older child in the same resort two years beforehand; and he has been working as a paparazzo but not following Britney as obsessive as some people.

Oddly, The Sun neglects to mention that Troy has been selling his pictures through the Splash agency - perhaps they're worried that, as customers of that agency, they'd be somehow implicating themselves in the McCann story (Wade buys Maddie resort perv company photos, perhaps?)
