A revamped alert system designed to find missing children faster is unveiled by Kate McCann later on the Southbank.

She's been calling for the old system to link in with European set-ups - and now it does.

It works by police - concerned about a child - flooding the media with messages asking you to look out for youngsters or possible suspects.
