Madeleine McCann cops ‘digging for secret cellar built under allotment rented by chief suspect Christian B’

GERMAN cops digging at an allotment rented by Madeliene McCann suspect Christian B are believed to be searching for a secret cellar at the site.

The paedophile monster frequented the allotment in Seelze, Hanover in the years after Maddie’s disappearance in 2007.

The dig comes days after they searched public gardens close to his former flat. 

Christian B previously boasted to the owner of an allotment he rented in Braunschweig, northern Germany, that he wanted to put perspex glass over a hole in the ground at her site.

The woman sensationally claimed last month he wanted to build a “Fritzel cellar” to stash snatched children under her land.

Now detectives are excavating another site some 45 miles away in Seelze, Hannover, where Christian B kept a second allotment in the years after Maddie’s disappearance.

The woman sensationally claimed last month he wanted to build a “Fritzel cellar” to stash snatched children under her land.

Now detectives are excavating another site some 45 miles away in Seelze, Hanover, where Christian B also frequented a second allotment in the years after Maddie’s disappearance.

They have also searched public gardens some 1.7miles away opposite a block of flats where he lived. 

One neighbour said: “There were two police tents on the street and a helicopter flying up above last week. 

“Police were very busy in the gardens opposite, they seemed to be looking for something. 

“They wouldn’t say what they were doing but it makes sense now knowing that he lived here and they are searching other sites he was involved with.






“Christian is remembered for selling weed when he lived here. The block where he lived always stunk of cannabis, he was the local dealer.”

The plot is four miles from his last known address in Hanover and just two miles from where the 43-year-old worked in a car workshop.

Thew apartment is situated right next to a school – with its playground visible from most windows. 

A run down swimming pool and leisure centre is plotted opposite the high-rise block where he lived, nearly three miles from the allotment being searched by cops this week. 

At the latest allotment site being searched this week, trees have been uprooted and a four-foot-deep hole dug at the remote plot, which is coincidentally located just three miles from the grizzly site where a sex worker’s dismembered body was found in 2010.

Christian B was questioned over the murder but never charged.

The German woman who rented her garden to Christian B in neighbouring Braunschweig told The Mirror in June: “There was a hole in the floor inside the allotment house and one day he told me he wanted to put a see-through perspex glass over it.

“I said to him, ‘What the hell for? Just so you can look down into a dirty old cellar?’

“In retrospect I think he wanted to build a Fritzl cellar like the guy in Austria who put his daughter down there.”

Trees have been uprooted and a four-foot-deep hole dug at the latest garden site linked to Chrstian B, near Hanover.

One local said the alleged tunnel cops were digging for could possibly be an old cellar from an outbuilding that once stood there.

Officers have been pictured leaving the 15-foot wide-garden clutching bags of dirt, which will be analysed by forensics teams.

They will analyse the soil for any potential DNA evidence that links Maddie to the site.

Laubs are commonly included in the sales of city centre flats and apartments.

The searches were carried out in a joint operation by German federal police and the ­prosecutors’ office in ­Braunschweig, Christian B was convicted of rape last year.

The plot, one of five on the site, is commonly known as a ‘laub’ in German.

They are garden areas owned by city dwellers to give them refuge from the hustle and bustle of urban life.
