The PA wire has a statement from the McCann Family:
Clarence Mitchell, the spokesman for Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann, demanded an apology from Mr Lewis.
He said: "The offensiveness of this activist's actions is almost beyond belief.
"I know Gerry and Kate will be grateful that the Tory Party has taken swift and appropriate action by ejecting him from the party.
"His actions are not only disgraceful in themselves, they will also cause great hurt to Kate and Gerry. I feel it is appropriate that he now apologises both privately and publicly to them.
"It is a complete disgrace that Madeleine's name and image should be made fun of in this way."
The swift action by the Party was exactly the right thing to do.
