The parents of Ashya King have spoken exclusively to the BBC's Jon Kay about their longing to see and care for their son in hospital, following their release from a Spanish prison.

Brett and Naghemeh King were detained after taking five-year-old Ashya, who has a brain tumour, from a Southampton hospital against medical advice.

British prosecutors withdrew a European arrest warrant on Tuesday night.

Speaking after her release, Mrs King said: "I could not do much, really. All I could do was just cry and pray."
