Sabine Sellig, who bought the plot from the paedo, urged cops to dig, telling a pal: “I’m worried I’m sleeping on a body.”

The Braunschweig site is 40 miles from Christian B's Hanover plot where police found a cellar on Wednesday.

He and his girlfriend lived at a decrepit home in Braunschweig from 2013-16.

He was there when Inga Gehricke, five, vanished nearby.

Neighbour Manfred Richter, 80, said Christian B got in trouble for digging the cellar and dumping stones over two months, adding: “He covered the hole with planks.”

Allotments boss Juergen Kruimstoh said Christian B made a hasty exit in 2016.

Madeleine vanished aged three in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007, when Christian B lived in the area.

Prosecutors refused to say if they plan a second dig.
